Del Norte County Board of Supervisors could approve over half a million to DHHS

DEL NORTE - Del Norte County could be approving over half a million dollars to the Department of Health and Human Services, Tuesday night, at it's Board of Supervisors meeting. The department has requested funds for three different agreements.

If approved, the first would help people in a mental health crisis seek further treatment at BHC Sierra Vista Hospital in Sacramento.

The second is a renewal to subsidize childcare for people in the Calworks program and provide funds to the childcare council.

The third would be with Zia Partners Consultation Firm to help DHHS combine their drug and alcohol program with their mental health program. The firm would also help the department transform from their current agency model to a people-centered model. That model will help them manage and provide services more effectively to their clients.
