Working Together to Make a Measurable Difference Community Information Sessions
In fall 2012, the Fairfax County Human Services System held four community information sessions, Working Together to Make a Measurable Difference. The sessions were open to the public and provided an opportunity for representatives of nonprofit and community-based organizations; businesses; faith-based organizations and houses of worship; public schools and higher education institutions; and human services boards, authorities and commissions to discuss:
- Affordable housing.
- Connected individuals.
- Economic self-sufficiency.
- Healthy people.
- Positive living for older adults and individuals with disabilities.
- Successful children and youth.
These topics are conditions of well-being or results that the human services system seeks for those it serves.
Representatives who attended the sessions were asked to share trends related to the six results and their organization’s contributions in these areas.
The Working Together to Make a Measureable Difference Community Information Session Summary shares findings from these valuable community information sessions. Items listed in this summary represent the views of the participants and organizations that attended dialogue sessions.
