PFCD - Partners in Family & Community Development
CSS MenuMaker


The membership of the Partnership may form whatever committees or task groups it deems necessary to perform its duties and accomplish its goals. The number of task groups operating at any time remains fluid depending on the needs in the county, resources and opportunities available to the group. It is anticipated that issues will surface in the community that impact the welfare of its residents and whose solutions fit into accomplishing the vision, mission, and goals of the Collaborative. Groups interested in working on these issues will see PFCD as an umbrella organization that can assist Partners in achieving objectives for the common good of the county. Presently, task groups have been formed to work on these major areas – Poverty, Teen Pregnancy Prevention, and Communities That Care. These task groups will function as working planning groups whose primary goal is to:
