Borough Based Councils

Borough Based Councils

The Borough Based Councils (BBC) are monthly meetings for family members, youth and family service providers across all service systems to share information and resources, to identify local solutions to service delivery issues, be a place for family members and youth to bring their thoughts and concerns about child, youth and family services to the table, and to identify gaps in service and cross-systems issues that require problem-solving at the city or state level.
