Randy Slavens has been promoted to director of the Northeast Human Service Center in Grand Forks and the Lake Region Human Service Center in Devils Lake.

Slavens has been the assistant director of the human service center in Grand Forks since 2007, and he originally joined the department in 1997 as an assistant regional supervisor for child welfare services, according to a news release from the North Dakota Department of Human Services. That state agency operates eight regional human service centers across the state.

Kate Kenna retired as the director of the northeast and lake region centers in June.

The Northeast Human Service Center employs about 140 people, while the Devils Lake-based Lake Region Human Service Center employs 60, according to a news release.

Staff members provide behavioral health services and developmental disabilities program management services. Other services may be provided directly or through partnerships with county social services and other providers, the news release said.
