Community and Human Services

Programs and services that help people get back on their feet.

This is perhaps the most important thing we do. Making sure people have food on the table. A roof over their heads. All the things a lot of us take for granted, until we need help. This is where you’ll find it.

There’s child care, child support, employment, energy, food, financial, medical and mental health assistance.  If you’re a seniorveteran or a person with a disability, there’s a program designed just for you. There are also programs for adult and child protection.  Even transit programs to help you get around.

We have partnerships with government agencies, local non-profits, faith-based organizations and private sector service providers. Working together, we take on the tough issues of poverty and homelessness in Douglas County, including women, infant and children.

We’ll help navigate paperwork. Cut through red tape. And do what needs to be done to get you back on the path to self-sufficiency.

What could be more important than that?
