Human Services
Smiling faces in our diverse family

Human Services

We are building a healthy, connected community that empowers people and strengthens families by confronting the root causes of crisis and instability.

Hope for the future, help when you need it. This sums up our philosophy. We believe in strengthening multiple generations through prevention-focused integrated services: getting the right mix of supports – as early as possible – to each person in the family who needs them. We are also committed to ensuring every one of our neighbors has equal access to the supports they need – and deserve – to thrive.

Our main focus areas are investing in early childhood well-being and education, and integrating our services and data systems to provide complete support to everyone who seeks our help.
