Constituents in Crisis? Human Services to the Rescue!

Super HeroThere are a broad continuum of county agencies and programs that are dedicated to providing community-based services to address the special needs of children, families, older adults, and persons with disabilities.

Each agency plays a particular role and at the MACo Winter Conference session, “Constituents in Crisis? Human Services to the Rescue!,” you’ll learn which to call when your residents need vital help and support.
