Family, Health, & Self-Sufficiency Committee

This committee began as the Clearinghouse Committee. As new programs have been added that fit the community and the health fields, we saw the need to change the name along with vision and mission for this working committee.

Vision of the Family, Health & Self-Sufficiency Committee: Developing Human Capital in Scott County

Family, Health & Self-Sufficiency Committee’s Mission: Partners working to ensure all segments of our community have the opportunity for a high quality of life from birth to death.
