“Partnering with our community to protect those
in harm’s way and help all people in need.”In 2005 Denver Human Services
developed a Strategic
Plan to provide services to our community in the most efficient and
effective ways possible. Services are both financial and protective in nature.
Eligible Denver residents in financial need may apply for services which include
federal food, cash and medical benefits. It also includes child care, child
support, energy, rental and burial assistance, all designed to help families and
individuals toward financial self-sufficiency.
Protection & Prevention services are provided via child, youth and adult
protection services, along with community focused programming. Our community
programming includes veterans’ services, homeless services, and drug awareness
campaigns. We seek to strengthen individuals, families and communities with the
services provided and are dedicated to working with our partners in the
community. We welcome volunteers and partner organizations in becoming involved
in our important work to service Denver.
