Welcome to the Barnstable County Department of Human Services’ Public Health and Wellness website - a resource for individuals, families, and agencies interested in public health. The site provides data and information about community services, laws, and related news, and includes a robust local Service Directory. The recently updated service directory is comprehensive and includes resources on aging, disability, mental health, substance use, housing, and basic needs.
Barnstable County’s Department of Human Services plans, develops, and coordinates regional solutions to Cape Cod’s most pressing health and human service issues. We foster and support collaborative initiatives with data analysis, strategic planning, and investment of county, state and federal resources. Our goal is to create a “Healthy Connected Cape Cod”.
