Barnstable County Department of Human Services

Barnstable County Department of Human Services plans, implements, and supports regional efforts that address critical health and human service needs.  Hunger, homelessness, suicide prevention, substance abuse, chronic disease, healthy aging, and disability issues are among our areas of focus.

By facilitation strategic planning, capacity building, program implementation, and securing funding for our community and municipal partners, the Department supports a coordinated system of care on Cape Cod.

We convene, connect, and collaborate to promote the health and well-being of all County residents and to help create a healthy, connected Cape Cod.
