It is the time of year to update the Barnstable County Department of Human Services’ comprehensive online directory of local health and human service agencies (  The directories have recently been improved by merging all our service directories into ONE searchable database – Health and Human Services Directory.  During this process, a group of Cape Cod human service professionals helped us organize the service directory to make it more user-friendly.  Thank you to Beth Bowman, Kathie Callahan, Karen Cardeira, Beverly Costa-Ciavola, Suzanne Faith, Cassie Jackson, and Julie Showalter for their time and expertise.

We need your help!  It’s time for the 500+ agencies to review their profile to ensure that information is current, accurate, and easy to find. Up-to-date information is important to the increasing number of website users. During the past 12 months, both websites received over 17,000 visits and averaged over 200 visits per day. Searching for an organization in this directory is unlike a Google search in that organizations must meet our inclusion criteria.
