For Public Review and Input

Actions of Red Lake County Social Services are dictated by Statute.  Where Statute defers to County specific plans, the social service office develops plans to meet the needs of the community.  Below are plans that detail how specific needs are met or funds are utilized and, where indicated, for plans on which we specifically seek out the community's input.  We welcome suggestions on how to improve our plans at any time.  This is the link to complete currently available surveys, which will help us improve our services.  Continue reading on this page to see documents available for public review and input.

Some of these plans may currently be under development or are subject to ongoing revisions, so if there are sections that appear blank it may be that those details are still being worked out, or that a particular item does not apply to our service area.
