The Northwest Hennepin Human Services Council was established in 1972 as a Joint Powers Agreement among cities in Northwest Hennepin County to do regional research, planning and coordination of human services that make a difference in the lives of area residents.
- Municipalities should share the responsibility of overseeing that human service needs of residents are met
- Residents and consumers should play a critical role in defining their own needs and problems, and in recommending appropriate solutions
- Suburban residents should have access to human services within their own communities
- Provide local information to decision makers
- Coordinate networks of service providers
- Involve residents in the planning process
- Serve as a catalyst for joint endeavors
- Initiate innovative, cross-cultural, multi-sector programs
