Looking Back at 2019
We are happy to have launched our review—by King County Council District—of our Top Highlights in 2019. The Department of Community and Human Services provides equitable opportunities for people to healthy, happy, self-reliant and connected to community. Our goal is to make King County a welcoming community where every person can thrive. We hope to inspire trust in the residents of King County by showing who we are, how we work, how we partner and the results we deliver.
At DCHS, we strive to be one team that solves problems by being customer-focused and we driving for results. There’s still a lot of work to undo and systems to dismantle, but we aim to be racially just and respect our residents. With these things in mind, we’re looking to lead the way through responsible stewardship of our community resources.
In the department, we have an unofficial motto that goes something like, “We do cool stuff. Although, we don’t quite say, “stuff.” This visual project highlights 100 instances of some of the cool things we do for the people we serve—and that only scratches the surface of the work that our teams and partners accomplish every day!
We want to give a big thank you to our residents who support our mission and to our partner organizations who help get this large body of work done. We carry this gratitude closely and seek to foster stronger relationships as we look forward to 2020 and beyond.
You will find this information in an interactive presentation of our Top Highlights in 2019, which gives an overview of the work we do. Also included is a downloadable PDF of the presentation as well as a PDF version for print. To learn more about the work and programs listed, visit our website on King County.
