Oregon Historical County Records Guide
Wallowa 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.
In 1995 the Wallowa County Mental Health Center converted to non-profit status and contracts with the county to provide services. Although the county commission appointed a mental health advisory board, it was inactive until 2005. The minutes for the Mental Health Advisory Committee are now maintained by the Wallowa Valley Together Project, a non-profit organization.
