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 county court acts as the board of health for Wheeler County (County Commissioners Administrative Journals). Wheeler County contracts with Morrow/Wheeler Behavioral Health for mental health, alcohol and drug, developmental disabilities, and related services. Wheeler County shared administrative services related to the Commission on Children and Families with Gilliam County until 1995.
