The Minnesota Department of Human Services provides Minnesotans with a variety of services intended to help people live as independently as possible.
Minnesota Department of Human Services Commissioner Lucinda Jesson honored eight organizations from across the state for their outstanding contributions to human services program clients. Recipients of the 2013 Commissioner’s Circle of Excellence Awards were recognized Monday, Dec. 16, at a ceremony at the Elmer L. Andersen Human Services Building in St. Paul.
Jesson said winners in the third annual Commissioner’s Circle of Excellence Awards stand out among many organizations providing critical human services programs and promoting healthy and productive communities in Minnesota.
“Our vision at the Department of Human Services is healthy people, stable families and strong communities, but we know that we won’t get there alone,” said Jesson. “The people and organizations being recognized today represent the very best of the many successful partnerships we have across Minnesota.”
