Organization: Community Services Advisory Board

Sector: Government Agency

Organization Mission: "To deliver a range of social services driven by community needs and legal mandates which are guided by quality, effectiveness, accountability and efficiency." The Community Services Advisory Board (CSAB) is appointed by the County Board and is responsible for making recommendations to the County Board on policy and funding of all social services for Olmsted County. The Community Services Advisory Board will represent the citizens at large and will advocate to the County Board for the balanced program of social services for residents within the financial resources (internal/external) of the County. Annually, the CSAB develops the Social Services Community Assessment, which evolves from; reviewing unmet needs, testimony from the public hearings (held the 2nd Wednesday in April), written testimony and work groups identifying concepts and strategies.

  • For the commercial sector, we tend to register startup activities (new companies and new commercial projects) that bring diversification and high-impact opportunities to the area.
  • For the non-profit sector, we wish to shine light on all the organizations and services that otherwise labor under relative obscurity.
  • Our hope is that dmcbeam.org will encourage cross-sector collaborations and creative solutions.

While there are a number of registries in the community, dmcbeam.org's  distinct value is to pilot a database with a data structure and categorizations that answer the questions such as: What organizations or projects/programs in our community that have purported relevance with some of the over-arching focuses put forward by initiatives such as DMC, J2G and Health Improvements?

This database could be used as one of the ways to explore the capacities of the community. If you are someone on an exploratory journey to learn about the greater Rochester community. dmcbeam.org could be an interesting first step.
