PIERRE, S.D. – The South Dakota Department of Human Services (DHS) recently unveiled updates to its strategic plan. The intent is for the document to better reflect the department’s current strategies for carrying out its mission and goals.

Some notable changes include the following: reduction of duplicative or outdated goals and strategies; a new design, incorporating the DHS logo and color palette; larger type throughout the document; and the addition of a complementary addendum, defining DHS’ “stakeholders,” mentioned three times in the strategic plan to emphasize the agency’s important partnerships. A more accessible, text-only version was also created.
