CICS Expands into Greene County
CICS is pleased to announce the addition of Greene County to the CICS region. Effective July 1, 2018, Greene County will join the counties of Boone, Franklin, Hamilton, Hardin, Jasper, Madison, Marshall, Poweshiek, Story and Warren in improving the lives of individuals from their communities.
CICS coordinates and secures funding for mental health and disability services for its region’s residents. The organization provides the vital link between individuals and appropriate resources to improve health, hope and successful outcomes. Adding Greene County to its region is a sign of strong performance and growth for CICS.
“We are delighted to welcome Greene County into our region,” said CICS CEO Jody Eaton. “We feel that CICS has a great deal to offer Greene County and look we forward to improving access to mental health and disability services in their communities.”
The CICS Governing Board voted to allow Greene County to join the region after receiving a formal request in a letter dated November 6, 2017. The final step will be for the Greene County Board of Supervisors to sign the CICS 28E agreement. Greene County borders Boone County and brings an estimated 9,000 residents to the CICS region, according to a 2015 census. Jefferson is the county seat, and a CICS county representative will be named in the near future.
