About Us

We provide comprehensive social services to individuals and families over the course of the full lifetime spectrum, from before birth to the elderly. Services are designed and coordinated to address and relieve hardships associated with poverty. The service delivery model is strongly client-centered and comprised of many direct services to meet the needs of the entire family.

Our major goals are to end homelessness; stabilize home occupancy; minimize hunger; reduce the need for institutionalization of the elderly; improve access to abuse prevention, intervention and support services; ensure that all individuals 18 years and older (including foster care and juvenile youths) are work ready; ensure that all children are school ready through the Head Start/Early Head Start program; and increase the self-sufficiency of vulnerable residents and special populations.

Title VI Compliance

The Community Action and Human Services Department complies with all Title VI rules and regulations.
