Established in June 2011, Safe Kids Clayton County is a community coalition committed to developing a safe and healthy place for our children to play and grow, free from unintentional injuries. We are committed to developing a safe and healthy community through partnerships, public awareness, policy advocacy, and education.
We accomplish our mission and vision by targeting six focus areas:
Safe Kids Clayton County is led by the Clayton County Board of Health. The Clayton County Board of Health (CCBOH), seeks “A Healthier Clayton in One Generation.” This is accomplished through health promotion, protection, prevention, and emergency preparedness planning activities that are evidence-based and data-driven. The CCBOH administers a number of free and reduced-cost health services and programs, including: Community wellness classes; health education outreach; hypertension prevention; reproductive health services for men and women; adult and child immunizations; children’s dental services; developmental screenings and early intervention services; care coordination for children and youth with special health needs; testing and treatment for HIV/AIDS and other sexually-transmitted infections (STIs); supplemental nutrition assistance for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC), and home visitation for pregnant and parenting moms.
