Board at Ribbon Cutting Volunteer to serve on one of our boards!

The Department of Community and Human Services (DCHS) places the highest value on the input and assistance we gain from the clients, consumers, advocates, service providers, family members and interested residents who volunteer to serve on our advisory boards.

Each board plays a vital role in developing programs and policies for the people we serve. They offer advice on funding priorities and service delivery, provide legislative advocacy, and host and attend community events.

Learn more Board calendars and meeting summaries are available on each of the DCHS Board web sites listed at right.

We seek boards that mirror the diversity of our King County population. Several of the boards also have unique recruitment needs or requirements within their bylaws.

If you would like to have a voice in shaping human services, please consider volunteering!

Information on how to volunteer is available for each of the DCHS Boards listed at right.
