Social Services

"There is no greater joy nor greater reward than to make a fundamental difference in someone's life." 
- Mary Rose McGready

The purpose and vision of every responsible local government is the betterment of the people, families, and communities that it serves. While governments attempt to respond to economic and demographic changes that can have dramatic impacts on the fabric of the community, continued feedback from the community helps us to identify community priorities and establish programs and projects that truly help address the most severe community needs. Below is an array of social service information and resources depending on your needs.
