DENVER (Aug. 4, 2020) - The Colorado Department of Human Services (CDHS) recognized Summit County for 2019 C-Stat Distinguished Performance. The county’s outstanding performance efforts were tied to programs that help Coloradans, including helping more local families move toward a stronger economic future by connecting Coloradans with meaningful work opportunities and workforce development programs, delivering crucial food and energy assistance in a timely manner and keeping vulnerable adults and children safe.

“We believe in being people-first, and it clearly shows that Summit County lives that out every day,” said CDHS executive director Michelle Barnes. “Summit County is leading the way as a top performer by delivering fast and consistent services, helping Coloradans find resources and meet the needs of their families. Through C-Stat, we’re better measuring our impact and constantly improving the services provided to Coloradans.”

C-Stat is a performance management tool that allows CDHS to better focus on and improve performance outcomes that enhance people’s lives. The Distinguished Performance Award recognizes counties that are timely, safe and accurate in work and meeting goals. Counties that meet their goals are more likely to be meeting the needs of individuals and families in their community, and more likely to have higher completion rates of applications. Nineteen counties received a 2020 C-Stat Distinguished Performance Award.

The counties identified as distinguished performers were Arapahoe, Archuleta, Baca, Clear Creek, Douglas, Eagle, El Paso, Elbert, Grand, Gunnison, Hinsdale, Jackson, Park, Phillips, Pitkin, Summit, Teller, Washington, Yuma.

C-Stat is a performance-based analysis strategy that allows every program within the Colorado Department of Human Services to better focus on and improve performance outcomes. By identifying areas of focus, CDHS determines what is working and what needs improvement. By measuring the impact of day-to-day efforts, we are able to make more informed, collaborative decisions to align our efforts and resources to affect positive change.
