The Jefferson County Health and Human Relations Commission is a group of volunteers that were selected to help advise the County Commissioners on how to best meet the needs for issues of Health and Human Relations in our community.
The Jefferson County Health and Human Relations Commission meets once a month (Typically the last Thursday of the Month) to discuss topics that fall in the scope of health of human relations. Community members are welcome to attend meetings and bring topics for the commission to discuss or bring awareness to.
No, the HHRC does not operate with a budget, and the commission members are volunteers.
The HHRC works with the County Commissioners to make sure community concerns are being met and help facilitate community conversations. Some of the topics that have been brought to the commission and then passed on to the County Commissioners to follow up are: Concerns about Herbicide application in conservation areas, more awareness for fire safety and fire hydrant maintenance, concerns about inmate health and wellness in the County Jail, need for help spreading autism awareness, and the need of translation services in county run facilities. The HHRC dedicated one of their Fall 2023 meetings to a community conversation around the need for a YMCA or similar facility in our community which led to very productive sharing and progress.
