PURPOSES

 

The Florida Health and Human Services Board, Inc., is composed primarily of persons who have served on the Statewide Health and Human Services Board that was abolished by the Florida State Legislature in 2000.

 

 

FHHSB is a statewide organization comprised of Floridians, from Key West to Jacksonville, who are concerned that the people in local communities of Florida should be well informed about the problems they face in the domains of health and human services. We feel so strongly about these issues that we volunteer to carry on without state mandate and without state support.

 

 

FHHSB has as its primary mission that the people in local communities should be well informed of their situation, not just knowledge of the problems they face but also knowledge of the resources and promising practices available to address problems.

 

 

FHHSB, as a not-for-profit corporation, may engage in any activity or business permitted under the laws of the United States and the State of Florida, including but not limited to needs assessment, evaluation, research, communication, education and advocacy relevant to prevention, early intervention, and treatment of conditions and problems that threaten the well-being of children and families, the elderly, and, in fact, any persons in the counties and communities of Florida.

 

 

FHHSB invites all persons and organizations to join in this effort toward ensuring local community input into statewide decision making on health and human services.
