Reggie Bicha, CDHS Executive Director, delivered a plaque to Jackson County Social Services Director Glen Chambers for "C-Stat Distinguished Performance" during an award presentation in Walden.
C-Stat is the Department’s performance management strategy that tracks more than 100 measures in real time across all programs in an effort to improve outcomes for all Coloradans.
Counties are assessed on 21 performance measures. Jackson County Social Services was a top performer for the state, meeting its goals 81.9 percent of the time in 2014.
“Jackson County has demonstrated that using timely data results in meaningful differences for the community,” Bicha said.
One example of the performance measures Jackson County met is timely processing of new food assistance applications. Timely processing of new applications ensures eligible Coloradans have access to needed financial assistance for food. For Jackson County, this means reducing the likelihood of people in the community going hungry.
Jackson County Department of Social Services’ outstanding performance is in keeping with the Colorado Department of Human Services’ mission: to design and deliver high quality human and health services that improve the safety, independence, and well-being of the people of Colorado.
