Health and Human Services Advisory Committee (HHSAC)

Health and Human Services Advisory Committee was founded through Resolution No. 2003-164, which clearly explains the terms of membership. There are seven citizen members serving 3-year overlapping terms, two non-voting ex-officio members serving 2-year terms, and one youth advisory member. The committee typically meets on the third Thursday of every other month.

The committee was established to perform the following functions:
  • Advise the Health and Human Services Department on community needs and the implementation of integrated services to address these needs;
  • Provide community input and feedback to the Department;
  • Serve as a pool for statutorily required board and commission memberships;
  • Encourage and promote ongoing community involvement, communication, and education regarding HHS programs; and
  • Participate in specific, temporary task forces on select issues identified by the Health and Human Services Department.
