Human Services Department

Our goal is to improve the well-being of the individuals and families who reside in Sonoma County – especially those who cannot protect themselves. The Sonoma County Human Services Department is the right place to start when you need help. Our programs serve adults, children, families, veterans, people with disabilities and the elderly.

We can help with everything from providing job training and job search services, to enrolling eligible individuals and families in CalFresh or Medi-Cal, to supporting veterans, to protecting abused or neglected children and seniors. We team up with other organizations county-wide to make sure that we can meet important needs.

You can help too. Join us in protecting and improving the lives of people in Sonoma County. Please help by reporting abuse, becoming a foster parent, reporting fraud, or volunteering.
