Division Goals

The Community Services Division, formerly the Human Services Division, assists our community with providing funding for critical services for low- or moderately-low income citizens. We strive to serve the community by enabling people to live more satisfying, more independent and more productive lives. We work cooperatively with various professionals and assume a wide-range of roles to assist individuals, groups, organizations and communities. 

The Community Services Division supports community non-profit groups through grant funding.  This funding is then used for services such as food, clothing, housing, advocacy, crisis help, medical/dental program and various other needs in the community.  We do not provide direct services to clients.  If assistance is needed, please call   2-1-1.
