Social services provides essential services to most vulnerable citizens

Editor’s note: This is part of a series of letters the Echo Press is publishing as part of national County Government Month.

To the editor:

April is National County Government Month. I, along with the Douglas County Board of Commissioners, would like to thank the staff of the Social Services Department for the work they do with and for the citizens of Douglas County.

Social Services play a vital role in the community by providing essential services to some of our most vulnerable citizens.

In recognition of their dedication, Social Services staff are hereby recognized for the many years of service provided to ensure the safety and well-being of Douglas County residents. The Douglas County Board and I can be very proud of your collective attitudes and activities directed toward being an effective and trusted partner in your local community.
