For those who have explored the City of Long Beach Health and Human Services Department website and been overwhelmed by the large number of services the department provides, the next Open Up Long Beach meeting on Wednesday, Nov. 14 will provide a behind-the-scenes look at how the Health and Human Services Department operates.
“Our City’s Health and Human Services Department covers everything from birth and death records to bio-terrorism preparedness,” said 5th District Councilmember Gerrie Schipske. “It helps provide immunizations and low-cost health services, housing assistance, counseling, [and] wellness programs, and reaches out to thousands of our city’s residents every year. It may be the most important single entity in the city. Schipske initiated the Open Up Long Beach meetings to make city government more open, transparent, and accountable, and help residents get to know how various departments operate.
The meeting will take place at 2525 Grand Ave. from 6pm to 8pm. Seating is limited, and calling to reserve a space is recommended.
