The Sussex County Human Services Advisory Council is always looking for new members. Members must live or work in Sussex County, be a consumer of human services, a family member of a consumer of human services, an advocate for human services or an employee of a human services provider in Sussex County.
The Sussex County Human Services Advisory Council meets on the fourth Wednesday of each month (with some exceptions).
