Bucks County’s Health and Human Services Review, Seeks Community Input
The Bucks County Health and Human Services review subcommittee is seeking community input about the departments programs for a report to be developed in 2020.
The review subcommittee has set three focus groups and invites residents and community members to share their input related to the department’s programs and services in upcoming focus groups.
Focus Group Dates Are:
- Feb. 13 from 4:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the Bucks County Opportunity Council, 721 Veterans Highway, Bristol;
- Feb. 18 from 4:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. at Bucks County Intermediate Unit, 705 B. Shady Retreat Road, Doylestown;
- March 2 at Bucks County Opportunity Council, 136 Mill Street, Quakertown.
Kathleen Welsh Beveridge, who was appointed to the Health and Human Services review subcommittee in November, when it was formed by the Bucks County Commissioners during the transition said “We’d like to hear input and suggestions from residents outlining how we can potentially expand upon these vital services and/or improve existing services.”
Beveridge, who serves as president of The Bucks County Women’s Advocacy Coalition, a nonpartisan organization focused on bettering the lives of Bucks County women and families., said “Listening to residents’ experiences with the health and human services departments will help guide us in our comprehensive review process.”
Examining barriers that inhibit opportunities for Bucks County residents struggling to improve their circumstances, the subcommittee’s formal recommendations are expected by late spring 2020, she said.
