Human Services Team Introduces ‘Fergie’, Is Recognized by Commissioners for Community Work


June 27, 2019 – Clear Creek County Communications, Colo. Clear Creek County Human Services was recognized Tuesday during a regular Board of County Commissioners meeting for their receiving the 2018 C-Stat Award from the State.  Per the Colorado Department of Human Services (CDHS), C-Stat is, “...a performance-based analysis strategy that allows every CDHS program to better focus on and improve performance outcomes…”  Clear Creek County’s Human Services team was recognized for ‘Distinguished Performance on County C-Stat Measures’. 

“I am very proud of this team, and for all the work they do for children, families and others around the County every day,” said Cindy Dicken, County Health and Human Services Division Director.  The work Ms. Dicken refers to is the County’s efforts in Behavioral Health, Children, Youth & Families, Early Childhood, Economic Security, and Community Access & Independence---major divisions in CDHS who collect data and examine it on a monthly basis.        

“You really make us proud, including the fact that only a handful of Counties received this award,” said Sean Wood, Board of Commissioners Chairman.    

Welcome Fergie!    

Fergie III, a two-year old black Labrador Retriever, joined the Human Services Team recently and is already hard at work in the community.  ‘Canine Companions for Independence’—where Fergie came from—is a non-profit organization that breeds, raises and expertly trains assistance dogs designed to help people with disabilities, or to motivate and inspire clients with special needs.  The Human Services Staff sees her role in helping their work with children and families by offering a calm, supporting presence in sometimes difficult situations. 

“We’re really excited to have Fergie as a part of our team, and know she will make our work even better,” said Sarah Cassano, Human Services Caseworker Supervisor.
