Input Sought for County’s Human Services Strategic Plan

The Community Foundation for Loudoun and Northern Fauquier Counties is partnering with Loudoun County and local nonprofit organizations to develop a five-year human services strategic plan for the county, which will provide a roadmap for implementing improved, coordinated systems of care that meet the human service needs of Loudoun County.

The strategic plan will focus on services such as affordable health care, child care and housing as well as funding and advocacy. The plan is being developed through a collaborative effort by the Loudoun County government, the Community Foundation for Loudoun and Northern Fauquier Counties and the Loudoun Human Services Network. Representatives of these groups are serving on the Human Services Strategic Plan Steering Committee, which is developing the strategic plan.

As part of this effort, a series of meetings will be held Friday, Feb. 8, to take public comment on the county’s human services needs and recommendations on how to meet those needs. Local human services professionals will be attending the day-long series of meetings.

The input sessions are: 9 and 10:30 a.m. for government and public services employees, 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m. for patients and clients of nonprofit or county human services, 1:30-3 p.m. for business leaders and community members, and 3:30-5 p.m. for nonprofit executives and volunteers. The meetings will take place at HealthWorks for Northern Virginia, 163 Fort Evans Road NE (third floor meeting room) in Leesburg. Anyone with questions about the meetings may call 703-779-3505, ext. 2 or email info@CommunityFoundationLF.org.

The steering committee is scheduled to make final recommendations on a strategic plan to the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors in the fall of 2019.
