Human Services

Oxford County takes an integrated approach to helping clients. Our focus is one client, one file, one client service worker.

Finding, understanding and applying for social and community services can be a challenge -- especially when someone is already facing difficult times. That’s why the Human Services professional team considers many different factors when helping a client: income, education, health, transportation, employment, safety/legal, and shelter.

By focusing on overall quality of life, the Human Services team can help clients find out about other community programs and resources that can help meet their needs. Our goal is to provide great service while helping clients enhance their quality of life and contribute to their community.
