The outcome measures that we monitor year-to-year to track our progress can be found in the 2009-2010 accountability matrix. Where available, we reference comparable national, state, or county indicators.


Most importantly, we are thankful for the close working relationships we have with our Commissioners and community partners, who are essential to the work we do.
