Denver Human Services helps and protects people of all ages.

Denver Human Services provides assistance benefits and protection and prevention services to one in three Denver residents. Assistance programs including food, cash and medical benefits, child care, child support, and general assistance are provided to eligible Denver residents in financial need. Other assistance programs include Employment First and Veterans Services, which work with Denver residents and veterans on job placement and retention.

Protection & Prevention services are provided via child, youth and adult protection, along with community-focused programming that includes in-home services designed to strengthen families and prevent abuse or neglect.

DHS is also home to Denver's Road Home, the city's program to assist those experiencing homelessness, and the Office of Behavioral Health Strategies, the city's initiative to increase coordination and access to mental and behavioral health and substance abuse treatment programs.

DHS seeks to strengthen individuals, families and communities with all services provided and is dedicated to working with our partners in the community. We welcome volunteers and partner organizations who wish to be more involved in our important work.
