Barnstable County’s Department of Human Services plans, develops, and coordinates regional solutions to Cape Cod’s most pressing health and human service issues. We foster and support collaborative initiatives with data analysis, strategic planning, and investment of county, state and federal resources. Our current initiatives include convening key stakeholders to address substance use, homelessness, and chronic disease. In addition, we compile and disseminate regional human service information and resources. Our goal is to create a “Healthy Connected Cape Cod”.
