The Health and Human Services Collaborative 

The Health and Human Services Collaborative (HHSC) of the Family Resource Network of the Panhandle (FRNOTP) brings together broad representation from Berkeley, Jefferson, and Morgan Counties of West Virginia to identify and achieve solutions needed to enhance the well-being of children, families, and their communities.  The HHSC and its Work Groups accomplish this work through a  planning process that includes specific goals, objectives, and activities. The resulting HHSC Work Plan is coordinated by the HHSC Steering Committee of the FRNOTP Board. The HHSC strives to ensure all sectors of the community are represented on the Work Groups that develop and implement its overall HHSC Work Plan.
