DHHS and the Future
Tuesday, June 23, 2015
The County of Humboldt would like to invite community members to participate in a community meeting to get input related to the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) and the ideal characteristics the community would like to have in their next DHHS director.
The county’s current director of DHHS, Phillip Crandall, has
announced his intention to retire in January 2016. Director Crandall has served the county for
over 30 years and has been the department head since the establishment of
Health & Human Services as an integrated agency in 2001. DHHS is a
statewide model for integration of services and is recognized nationally for
the provision of services, including rural health/mental health services and
services to transition-age youth exiting the foster care system.
In preparation for the recruitment of a new director, the county
has selected professional consultants, W. Brown Creative Partners (WBCP), to
conduct an organizational assessment and job analysis for the position of director
In addition, you can take an on-line survey on our Open Humboldt portal.
