On Tuesday, August 8, the Mono County Board of Supervisors took action to consolidate the Public Health and Social Services Departments into the Mono County Health and Human Services (HHS) Department. The newly created HHS Department will oversee the Divisions of Public Health and Social Services.
The HHS Department provides support services for the health, safety and security of Mono County residents through a variety of programs, including:
- Child and Adult Services
- Office of the Public Guardian, Public Administrator
- Senior Services
- Housing Assistance
- Eligibility and Employment Services
- Environmental Health
- Public Health
- Fiscal Services, Administration, Sheltering
The consolidation results in a greater opportunity for improved service delivery and cost sharing between the Social Services and Public Health Divisions.
