Message from the Director
Welcome to the Human Services Agency’s website.
My goal for the website is that it serves as your pathway to services and resources throughout San Mateo County. We have created an environment that I believe is warm and welcoming, and our staff of dedicated professionals are here to help you. The Human Services Agency offers a wide range of services to support families and individuals, to help residents find employment and receive job training, and to ensure the well-being of children in our community. We strive to offer an array of preventive services that help make San Mateo County a prosperous community. For residents in need of help but are not eligible for our direct services, the Agency partners with a strong network of non-profit service providers to offer assistance.
Our vision for San Mateo County is that every child, adult, and family lives in a safe, healthy, thriving community. In our effort to get there, we assist individuals and families to achieve economic self sufficiency, promote community and family strength, and work to ensure child safety and well-being.
We can only achieve this thanks to the Agency's dedicated staff, the Core Services Agencies, and community partners who tirelessly work on behalf of our clients and working families, as well as the Board of Supervisors and the County Manager for their on-going support in providing assistance to children and families in our community. It is our honor to serve the people of San Mateo County and I welcome your feedback on how we can serve you better.
