Collaborating to improve human services in Westmoreland County

Though Westmoreland is the 11th most populated county in the state and home to 355,000 people, its network of 160 nonprofit and government human services providers do not have a central human service department comparable to other large counties. This means there is no formal coordination on the delivery of services such as housing, food assistance and mental health and addiction treatment.

Thanks to recommendations from the “Improving Human Services in Westmoreland County” report published in 2021, that’s about to change.
