Human Services

You have someone to turn to in your new neighborhood. Start with your Human Services Coordinator. They will help you locate community agencies and services as you settle into your new home and continue to support you should questions or needs arise. The Human Services Coordinator also publishes a monthly newsletter and place posts on the neighborhood bulletin boards to keep you informed about upcoming events, activities, and other important information.
