Community Human Services Council
As a result of the Smart Growth initiative and shrinking State and Federal resources, the Board of County Commissioners created the Community Human Services Council (CHSC). The CHSC is comprised of private and public community stakeholders and is charged with the task of effectively designing a community-based plan for current and future human service needs in Lee County.
As State and Federal funding diminishes, services and associated costs shift to the local community. This means we will need to prioritize services, invest in measurable outcomes, and coordinate advances in technology, planning, and service delivery to effectively meet service demands. The CHSC will assure there is a countywide strategic plan to assist in providing service coordination and resource planning. The strategic plan will promote strengthening of private and public partnerships, promote collaboration and integration of community services, and strive to eliminate fragmented service delivery systems.
