The Human Services Department, along with its 4 Divisions and 3 Offices, has developed partnerships with the public and private sectors to provide assistance in an integrated, comprehensive, community based, and consumer-directed manner. All services that are provided by Human Services are available to Broward County residents that are uninsured, underinsured, struggling due to a catastrophic event or that otherwise meet specified program requirements. Self-reliance is the goal of helping people get back on their feet. And when a resident has access, information, education and economic stability then they are able to be more productive and can contribute to and participate in the community in which they live.

To enhance the quality of life for Broward County residents through innovative and integrated health and human services programs.
