Clay Youth Connection Program Finds Home at Moosehaven

The Clay Youth Connection is an initiative that is striving to find students in the Clay County school system that are temporarily displaced and give them a place to live, so that a lack of sleep on a proper bed, or a void of breakfast, will no longer be a hurdle they face in their high school education. Moosehaven is providing rooms, food, relationships with the elderly and even jobs for the two teenagers that are a part of the initiative. Moosehaven is the breakfast before school, the bed to sleep on at night, the home over their heads that these two young adults haven’t had for the past few years, if not longer.
