The Clay County Children's Division is requesting 20 drug vouchers be purchased from Northland Dependency. These vouchers are $20 each and can be pre-paid by contacting Northland Dependency in Liberty and asking for Bridget or Kayla. These vouchers are used when drug use is a concern on open cases and can help assess parental capacities and help ensure safety of children. Once purchased, someone from Children's Division can pick up the vouchers.
Clay County Children's Division often has children brought into emergency care with nothing but what they have on. Sometimes this is a baby with only a diaper and a onesie and sometimes it's a teenager with too small clothing and no shoes. Every child deserves clean, comfortable clothes as well as hygiene items to make them feel as best as they can in a very scary time of their life. We want to ensure that every child in need has the opportunity for these items. To ensure that we can fulfill this need for any child, we have to have a range of clothing and items for ages preemie to age 18. Thank you for your consideration.
Items may be dropped off at Clay County Children's Division. Clothing items may be gently used.
A smart & vibrant 10- year old has been placed in the care of her aunt for the past two years. During that time her aunt has taken her in to her home and provided her with a safe, loving and stable home. Her aunt moved into a better neighborhood and school district to provide her niece a better lifestyle. Shortly after moving the aunt lost her job and is now struggling to make ends meet. She has gone through all of the steps to take guardianship of this youth & is awaiting guardianship any day now. The youth is in need of some things that the aunt is unable to provide at this time. She is in need of some summer clothing, girls size 10 tops & shorts, women's shoes size 6.5. or 7 tennis shoes. If you are able to help out with this need it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

She was driving to pick up her 6 month old daughter from the person who was watching her. This youth has been trying to work and get the money to pay for the tickets but the cost of having her daughter, and getting her the items that she needs comes first. The tickets are $113 and $166. we are desperately trying to help her pay this so that she does not get a warrant issued for not paying the fines. She has been an amazing mother to her daughter, and this has been a stressful situation for her.

Children who we have in foster care are given presents when it is their birthdays by our staff. Sometimes this means that staff are spending their own money on these gifts. Thanks to the generosity of our community, we have been able to have a birthday closet, but our birthday closet is in need of restocking for gifts for various ages. Thank you!

Family recently moved to a new home and the home did not come with a refrigerator. They do not have the money to purchase a refrigerator at this time and the landlord is not providing one for them. There are 6 children in the home, ages 1 year-11 years.
There are also concerns about the children's safety with opening the door to strangers. There is a lock on the front door, but the young children know how to unlock it and open the door. They have opened the door to strangers in the past, so we are also requesting door knob covers or locks or door guards to prevent the younger children from opening the door.

I have a refrigerator that is in good shape, however, one of the shelves need some TLC...maybe some duct tape to reinforce it from bottoming out if food is on it...and it might need a little spring cleaning. They are welcome to it if they are interested.
