Panhandle Community Services’ Board of Directors

Community Action Agencies like Panhandle Community Services are required to have a tripartite board consisting of equal representation from the local low-income community as well as the private and public community sectors. This structure brings together community leaders from each group to develop responses to local needs.

So that all 26 Texas Panhandle counties are represented equitably, a low income representative, a public representative, and a private representative from each of five panhandle regions (see corresponding map) serves on the PCS Board of Directors. Low-income and public representatives are elected, while private representatives may be appointed by the PCS Board of Directors.
