July 23, 2015 (Denver, CO) - Sedgwick County Department of Human Services was recognized today by the Colorado Department of Human Services (CDHS) for their performance in delivering high quality human and health services during 2014.
Reggie Bicha, CDHS executive director delivered a plaque to the Sedgwick County team 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. Sedgwick County Human Services was a top performer for the state, meeting their goals 86.1% of the time in 2014.
“Sedgwick County has demonstrated that using timely data results in meaningful differences for the people they serve in their community,” said Bicha.
One of the performance measures Sedgwick 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 Sedgwick County, this means
reducing the likelihood of people in their community going hungry.
Sedgwick 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.
