Accessibility Commitment

The Barnstable County Department of Human Services is committed to making its website accessible for all users including those with disabilities. We strive to present information on our website that is usable by all people, to the greatest extent possible, without the need for adaptation. We are working to make our site compliant with Section 508 and by meeting the W3C Web Accessibility Initiative Priority One checkpoints.

In some instances, we’ve included Portable Document Format (.pdf)pdf icon files (for forms and official documents) until we are able to develop more accessible options. For information on Adobe Acrobat PDF accessibility, please visit the Adobe Acrobat Accessibility.

The complexity of some of our materials may make accessibility difficult for some. If you encounter material or services on our website that you cannot use or access, please inform us so that accommodations can be made. Your comments and interest in our site help us to identify areas where we need to improve.

Please send all accessibility questions, concerns or suggestions to
