Looking Back:   Major Milestones of the First Ten Years

In the ten years that have passed, the Human Services system has undergone tremendous change and made substantial progress in the directions established by the Council.

Through such major milestones as the first redesign efforts, the 1995 Community Needs Assessment, welfare reform implementation, budget reductions, and human services performance measurement, the Council has provided oversight, analysis, and guidance to the human services system. The major milestones in the development of the current human services system over the last ten years illustrate both the scope of change that has occurred in the system and the value of the relationship between the Human Services Council, county human service agencies, and the community.

The timeline and pages that follow provide highlights of the major milestones and achievements of the Human Services System during the Council’s first ten years.
