"The Department of Human Services assists people in need by administering a wide range of public assistance programs. Primarily, we help low-income people as well as families and children in crises.
We help low-income county residents access food stamps, medical assistance and temporary cash assistance. And, we help them pay their heating bills when they lack the income to pay it themselves. We also collect and distribute child support payments.

In addition, we investigate allegations of child/adult abuse and neglect. Too often, the silent victims of family violence and volatile family dynamics are children. When necessary, we remove children from their families – either temporarily or for the long term – when the children are not being properly cared for by their families".
