Oregon Historical County Records Guide
Baker County Records Inventory
Health and Human Services Records
Series documents the activities of the county health and human services programs operated by the county. Series includes narrative or statistical monthly, quarterly, and annual reports or minutes discussing program goals, objectives, and accomplishments. Program areas include public and mental health; juvenile services; adult and family services; women, infant, and child (WIC) services; alcohol and drug abuse; and developmental disabilities. In 1994 the name of the Children and Youth Services Commission was changed to the Commission on Children and Families.
The board of commissioners acts as the county's health board and oversees the actions of the county health department. Mental health, developmental disabilities, and alcohol and drug treatment programs are provided through contracts with private, non-profit agencies. At the time of this inventory (2010), a local alcohol and drug planning committee was being formed.
