Houston County Human Services Mission Statement

Services and Responsibilties

The County Human Services Department is under the supervision of an appointed Board. The five elected County Commissioners also serve as the Human Services Board. The Board selects and hires a Human Services Director to administer and oversee the various Federal, State and County programs.

By statute, the Human Services Department is responsible for administering social services, child support services and financial assistance programs under state supervision.  The Department is responsible for providing protective services to vulnerable adults and children, for helping the elderly and disabled to achieve their highest level of independence, for providing child support services to custodial and non-custodial parents, and for assisting indigent and low-income families and individuals to meet their basic needs or to become self-sufficient.

In Houston County, the Human Services Department is divided into four units: Social Services, Income Maintenance, Child Support and Accounting, with the Director providing oversight for all units.
