Community Board

The NorthPoint Community Board governs oversees, sets strategic direction and establishes policies and procedures to ensure the effective operation of the organization. The majority of the board members must be patients or participants of NorthPoint. This important partnership between Hennepin County and the Community Board sets a new precedent for co-ownership of resources and assets in the community.
