Human Services build, maintain, and repair the means of well-being that people need to thrive and be self-sufficient, especially those who are vulnerable, by providing prevention, intervention, and advocacy support for all.


Physical, mental, emotional, and social well-being will be hallmarks of Westmoreland County. We will strive to create a Human Services ecosystem in Westmoreland County, particularly for our most vulnerable residents that is accessible, adaptive, equitable, high-capacity, integrated, and trauma-informed.
