Healthy Connected Cape Cod

Healthy Connected Cape Cod is the conceptual framework that ties together the work of the Department.  Our goal is to organize regional approaches by engaging residents, health and human service organizations, coalitions and networks throughout Cape Cod to plan and implement activities that promote health and well-being for County residents.

Barnstable County Department of Human Services convenes several regional coalitions to ensure a sustained regional impact on priority initiatives. By providing strategic leadership and structure, the Department supports regional efforts that address key health and human service issues, such as homelessness and substance use.
As the region’s health and human services clearinghouse, Barnstable County Department of Human Services connects individuals and organizations to the information and the services they need, providing data, research, technical assistance, online resource directories, and E-Newsletters.  The online calendar provides schedule of Department’s priority meetings and events, and the easily accessible “Emergency Hotlines” provides contact information for immediate help for those in crisis.
With the stewardship of the Health and Human Services Advisory Council, Barnstable County Department of Human Services brings community partners together to foster collaborations that enhance the health and well-being of Barnstable County residents.

Services

Data and Information Requests
Barnstable County Department of Human Services responds to local, County and State-specific data and information requests and provides consultation to assist in interpretation. The Department conducts community-based research to gather current information on the health and well-being of Cape Cod residents. This research helps inform government leaders and the region’s network of health and human services providers in several ways: a) to identify new or changing health and human service needs of the region’s residents, b) to identify challenges and barriers to service access, and c) to provide the perspective of residents and others regarding opportunities to strengthen existing services or consider new services to respond to gaps and barriers.

Barnstable County Department of Human Services responds to pertinent data requests for information regarding Cape Cod towns and villages by drawing from the Department’s primary research, as well as from other data sources such as the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the U.S. Census Bureau.

Public Health Planning
Barnstable County Department of Human Services can assist organizations and collaborations by providing a Cape-wide perspective based upon public health planning principles.
