NCDHHS Wants to Ensure NC Communities and Families Are Center of Department Work


The NCDHHS launched a Community Partner Engagement Plan and website to ensure the voices of North Carolina communities and families are at the center of the department’s work. Go to to see the many groups, organizations and commissions that NCDHHS currently partners with. The department will continue to update the website and encourages community members to get involved with a current group or sign on to work with the divisions that focus on your area of interest.

To improve internal processes, Secretary Kinsley issued a Secretarial Directive that unifies the department’s collaborative efforts into a guide for how to best engage with communities.NCDHHS is excited to deepen its partnerships and collaboration by strengthening connections with communities statewide and listening to their insights. The department’s goal is to grow together with North Carolinians and make major progress toward better health for all. Learn more in the Community Partner Engagement Guide and watch a video from Secretary Kinsley where he announces the plan. For more information on how to partner with NCDHHS, email [email protected].
