Consumer Appeals Process
It is our sincere hope that our services are always delivered in the most professional manner. However, if the service delivery or interactions with staff are not satisfactory to you, we want you to know that you have the right to discuss the issue with representatives who have progressively higher levels of organizational responsibility. You may first ask to speak to a supervisor, then the Executive Director, and finally write a complaint to the President of the Board.
