Addressing the health and human service needs of residents in Dane County requires drawing upon the wisdom, work, and resources of all sectors of our community, both public and private. Dane County is fortunate to have a myriad of dedicated funding bodies, organizations, and volunteers who work together to tackle the issues facing some of our most vulnerable residents.
The partnerships and collaborations run the gamut from joint efforts by the City of Madison, Dane County, Madison Metropolitan School District, United Way of Dane County, and others on the community assessment of health and human service needs, to partnerships with local organizations in an effect to address specific issues.
