Lake County Lifeline

Lifeline Board 2017Board of Directors

General Info

Lifeline’s Board is unique to many other non-profits because it is a federally-mandated tripartite Board—its membership must be evenly comprised of representatives of public officials, private sector representatives and representatives of low-income, minority and mentally ill populations.

It is the tradition of Community Action to engage low-income populations in the management of their local Community Action Agency. Our Board feels strongly that it is important for our clients to have a voice on our Board to actively advocate on their behalf and is proud that our membership reflects that.

Lifeline’s Board also strives to accurately reflect the population of Lake County while also maintaining a Board with a diverse set of skills and resources.

Lifeline Board meetings are held at 6:00 p.m. on the third Wednesday of each month and we welcome public comment at the start of each meeting.
