Our Mission... to provide quality intervention, support services and financial oversight to our community in the areas of Mental Health, Developmental Disabilities and Chemical Dependency.
Our Values... to treat those we serve with both dignity and respect. Through intervention and support we strive to promote recovery, instill hope and empowerment to assist people in leading healthy, productive lives within their own community by collaborating with community partners and facilitating community inclusion.
The Department of Human Services... in partnership with our stakeholders, strive to provide quality services in Mental Health, Developmental Disabilities, Chemical Dependency, DUI Traffic Safety, Transitional Housing, Permanent Supportive housing and other services on behalf of our community's most vulnerable citizens. We are committed to providing outstanding financial and contractual oversight for these areas and promoting effective interaction with partner agencies and informal support systems to ensure health and recovery in supporting people in our rural community. It is our intent and commitment to enhance our transparency and create further clarity around the scope of our services, either directly or through contractual relationships. To further that end, the newly integrated Human Services Advisory Board (HSAB) includes participants from mental health, developmental disabilities and chemical dependency. This Board will assist the community in developing a better understanding regarding the various systems we oversee and provide a voice toward the Department's strategic plan that drives the services provided by our Department and our provider network. Finally, we wish to express gratitude and thanks to those stakeholders who have provided support and advocacy during these economically challenging times.
