To provide, serve, and educate eligible residents of Palm Beach County through case management, social services, advocacy and community linkage thereby empowering the individual/family to improve their quality of life.
Palm Beach County Division of Human Services offers services within four (4) Program Components: Emergency, Self-Sufficiency, Intervention and Homeless Services.
As far back as 1964, the Palm Beach County Division of Human Services and Veterans Services have existed for the purpose of serving eligible citizens in need. Assistance with basic living expenses, as well as, provision of state mandated services has always been the foundation of Division services.
Over the last decade, the Division has strengthened its Case Management model of service delivery. That is, instead of one time payment of delinquent rent or utility bills, eligible citizens are now engaged in a thorough Intake and Assessment; provided structured services that address identified barriers to economic stability; and provided intensive Case Management to assist them in gaining or regaining self-sufficiency.
