One major way residents can have a positive impact on the future of Orange County is to volunteer to serve on the various county advisory boards and commissions.
Orange County is currently seeking applicants to serve on the Adult Care Home Community Advisory Committee.
This 12-member committee works to maintain the intent of the Adult Care Home Residents’ Bill of Rights for those residing in licensed adult care homes. The members of this committee also promote community involvement and cooperation with these homes to ensure quality care for the elderly and disabled adults. Members are appointed by the Board of Commissioners to at-large positions. There is an initial one-year training term with subsequent eligibility for three additional two-year terms.
If interested, please apply online at www.co.orange.nc.us/boards/apply.asp. For additional information select “Adult Care Home Community Advisory Committee” under "Boards and Commissions Listing" or call Donna Baker at (919) 245-2130 or Jeanette Jones at (919) 245-2125.
With more than 30 different boards and commissions, volunteers appointed by the Board of County Commissioners have an opportunity to influence the way of life in Orange County.
