The Board of Human Resources, which oversees and sets policy for the Georgia Department of Human Resources (DHR), will seek public input as the agency and its board plan for the SFY 2009 budget.

The Department of Human Resources is the state’s agency that manages programs that protect children from abuse and neglect, assist Georgia’s senior living communities, assist people with mental or physical disabilities, and control the spread of disease.

In an effort to become more effective in its delivery of services, the Board of the Georgia Department of Human Resources is holding a series of public strategic roundtable discussions to solicit community involvement statewide during the months of May and June.  

These roundtables are designed to engage the public in the strategic policy and prioritization of the Department and help improve its decisions by involving those most affected.  This is an opportunity for members of the public to provide the Board of Human Resources with comments on the services they feel are important for DHR to provide in Fiscal Year 2009.

The local roundtable will be held June 14 at The Armstrong Center, 13040 Abercorn Street, from 5-7 p.m. Because space is limited, it is important to register. Simply send an email to
