What's New in Human Services

CCS Reorganization

Ashland County Health and Human Services, Bayfield County Human Services and New Horizons North, Inc. of Ashland have partnered for many years to provide community-based services to county residents for a wide variety of services.

A reorganization of the Comprehensive Community Services (CCS) Program is currently underway. The restructuring will impact how programs are delivered. The intent of this reorganization is to maintain the quality of services provided to current CCS participants while expanding the program to additional eligible residents in a fiscally responsible manner. Everyone is working to ensure service continuation during this transition.

If you or someone you know is experiencing a service disruption or has other questions or concerns, please call Ashland Health and Human Services Department at (715)682-7004 or Bayfield County Department of Human Services at (715)373-6144.

Service Providers Needed!

Bayfield County Human Services is experiencing a shortage of service providers to assist children with disabilities. We are looking for: mentors, supportive home care workers, daily living skills coaches, respite providers, and in-home nursing staff. We have several children with funding approved from the State of Wisconsin, but no people to provide the services they need. Some of these services are needed on a daily basis, but others are only once or twice per month. If you have experience working with people with special needs, or you have some extra time and kindness to share with a local family, we NEED YOU! Please contact the Youth Services Coordinator, Kristin Opperman, at 715-373-6144, ext. 122 or email Kristin Opperman.
