The Governor's Cabinet on Nonprofit Health and Human Services was established in September of 2011 to analyze existing public-private partnerships with respect to the state's health and human services delivery systems and to make recommendations to enhance the effectiveness of those systems in regard to client outcomes, cost-effectiveness, accountability and sustainability.
The Cabinet serves as a vehicle for providing critical, up-to-date information for nonprofit health and human service providers and a venue to promote "best practices."
