Human Services Department Mission

Our mission is to create a healthy, socially thriving and inclusive community by providing and supporting human services to Boulder residents in need. The department has four primary areas of work including Senior Services, Family Services, Community Relations and Human Services Planning.

We envision a healthy, diverse and sustainable community in which all residents are successful and contributing members.

We provide direct services to the community where there is a need and funding to nonprofits to support their vital work in the community.  We work with local and regional partners and residents to identify social trends and plan for meeting the human service needs of the community.
