Sussex County Division of Community and Youth Services Wins
"People's Choice Award" First Place Ribbon at State Fair
The Department of Human Services, Division of Community and Youth Services plays an essential role in Sussex County, by providing people in need with vital human services, as well as operating successful direct care programs . At the 2014 Sussex County Farm and Horse Show, New Jersey State Fair, the Community and Youth Services' display won the "People's Choice Award" first place ribbon for the theme of, "A Helping Hand Close to Home."
The objective in creating this display was to give the community a better understanding of our role in the County. There are six programs within our Division and for that reason, it was decided that a puzzle piece theme would be fitting. Also, the design of our booth was in keeping with the Fair's theme of a helping hand. Each program is an important piece to a larger puzzle. With the help from the Human Services Advisory Council, Youth Services Commission, Juvenile Detention Alternatives Program, Advisory Committee on Alcohol and Drug Abuse, Municipal Alliance, and the Mental Health Board, we piece the community together with needed services.
