Housing, Health & Human Services

The Housing, Health and Human Services Committee meets the 1st Wednesday of each month at 4:00pm. The Committee considers matters related to the health and well-being of Poulsbo residents, with an emphasis on vulnerable populations. The Committee discusses City initiatives, programs and partnerships that address four community needs:

  • Affordable and transitional housing
  • Low barrier behavioral health services (mental health, substance use disorders)
  • Public health and equitable access to health services
  • Services for individuals with low and limited income across age groups, with a focus on our youth and seniors.

The Housing Health and Human Services Committee works closely with other Council Committees to serve Poulsbo residents. Conversations here are often held at a conceptual level and may serve as starting point for other Committees’ deliberations.  The Committee frequently coordinates with local social service organizations and welcomes opportunities for collaboration.

Committee Members
  • Britt Livdahl

The Council will now be meeting as a committee of the whole in regular council meetings beginning at 5pm. The council meetings will be noticed weekly and the agenda can be found on the Council Agenda Page.
