July 24, 2015 (Denver) - Phillips County Department of Human Services was recognized yesterday by the Colorado Department of Human Services (CDHS) for their performance in delivering high quality human and health services during 2014.
Julie Krow, CDHS deputy executive director of community partnerships delivered a plaque to the Phillips County Director Jackie Reynolds for "C-Stat Distinguished Performance" during a director’s regional meeting held in Fort Morgan.
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. Phillips County Human Services was a top performer for the state, meeting their goals 78% of the time in 2014.
“Phillips County has demonstrated that using timely data results in meaningful differences for the people they serve in their community,” said Krow.
One of the performance measures Phillips County met was timely processing of new food assistance applications. Timely processing of new applications ensures eligible Coloradans have access to needed financial assistance for food. For Phillips County, this means reducing the likelihood of people in their community going hungry.
Phillips County Human 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.
