DCS Grant Expands Children's Center

The Claiborne Children’s Center (CCC) has received a Community Partnership Program grant from the Department of Children’s Services (DCS) to its expand programming and allow DCS to regain its presence in Claiborne County, the Claiborne Progress reports. The old Juvenile Detention Center has been used to house the offices of the CCC but the limited space did not provide adequate room for the Center to expand its programs and projects inside the county. The new center is expected to open in July.
