Rachel Roos Announced as Nevada County Social Services Director

Nevada County is pleased to announce the appointment of Rachel Roos as Nevada County’s Social Services Director, effective June 16th, 2020. Since 2011 Rachel has served as Executive Director of Victor Community Support Services, a community-based organization focused on mental health and support services for children and families. In that position Rachel works closely with Juvenile Probation, Child Welfare, Children’s Behavioral Health and other community organizations. Prior to joining Victor, Rachel was the Program Manager for Child Welfare in Nevada County.

"I am so excited to return to the Nevada County Department of Social Services team! I began my career here in 1999 and I really could not be more delighted to return. Nevada County has been my home for 21 years and my children were born and raised here. I feel incredibly grateful for the opportunity to serve our citizens alongside some of the most dedicated, caring, and collaborative people I’ve ever encountered. I look forward to starting in my new role. Thank you for your faith in me and your dedication and partnership in making Nevada County such a special place to live, love, and work". Said Rachel about her appointment. 

Nevada County has recruited for an individual who listens, supports and enables their team, is responsive to the community and committed to the vital work of supporting those in need. “Rachel has shown that she embodies the community connectedness, collaboration and commitment to service that make Nevada County and the Health and Human Services Agency so special, a transition in the director position can be challenging in normal times, and these are not normal times. I want to thank Mali Dyck, Assistant CEO for filling in and wearing multiple hats to help us through this transition, and the Social Services managers and staff for your flexibility.” said Ryan Gruver, Nevada County’s Health and Human Services Agency Director.
