Members reside in all eleven communities in the County and are appointed by the County Commissioners through an application process.

The Citizens Council promotes local responsibility for enhanced community life and works closely with local agencies, coalitions, businesses, and individual citizens to develop (1) a County-wide plan for the well-being of all children and families, (2) increased citizen interest and involvement (3) a continuum of programs and services for children and families, and (4) strong and effective advocacy for children and families in Belknap County.
