Four sessions planned for county-wide citizen input to develop strategic plan for Department of Health and Human Services.

CLEVELAND – Cuyahoga County aspires to be a vibrant and prosperous region where everyone thrives and all things are possible. As we plan for the future of Health and Human Services, community feedback is very important. To this end, all citizens are invited to participate in a series of listen and learn sessions to be held at a variety of locations and times around the county.

Citizens will be asked to form small groups to discuss what success looks like for thriving citizens by providing input on the following key outcome areas:
  • Citizens are safe, supported and able to care for themselves.
  • Citizens are prepared to learn, are educated, and are college/career ready.
  • Citizens are employed and on a path to upward income mobility and career advancement.
  • Citizens are valued and experience quality DHHS interactions and services.
