​Community Human Services Council

As a result of the Smart Growth initiative and shrinking State and Federal resources, the Board of County Commissioners created the Community Human Services Council (CHSC). The CHSC, comprised of private and public community stakeholders, is charged with the task of effectively designing a community-based plan for current and future human service needs in Lee County.

As state and federal funding sources diminish, services and associated costs shift to the local community. This means we will need to prioritize services; invest in measurable outcomes; and coordinate advances in technology, planning and service delivery to effectively meet service demands. The CHSC will assure there is a countywide strategic plan to assist in providing service coordination and resource planning. The strategic plan will promote the strengthening of private and public partnerships, promote collaboration and integration of community services, and strive to eliminate fragmented service delivery systems.

Volunteer with our youth services program

Neighborhood Accountability Board 

Volunteers represent the community by attending the NAB conference with the youth, youth's parent/guardian, victim, and other NAB volunteers to develop a case plan for the youth. To become a NAB volunteer, you must attend a training session to learn about the traditional juvenile court system versus the restorative justice system and learn how to put restorative justice principles into practice. An ​accountability board application must be submitted, along with passing a background check, and observing two conferences before you can participate. There is no set time commitment, you can volunteer as little as 2 hours a month. Anyone 14 years of age or older can volunteer with the NABs (youth need parental consent).
