Clayton County, GA

Pros: diversity, good pastors, and opportunities

Cons: gangs, youth needs direction

This is a good place to start

General info: clayton county is said to be known for a crime as opposed to outlying counties, but i have yet to have it effect me as my apartment complex is generally quiet.
