Denver Human Services helps and protects people of all ages.

Denver Human Services provides both assistance services and protection and prevention services to Denver’s most vulnerable residents. Assistance programs are provided to eligible Denver residents in financial need and include federal food, cash and medical benefits, as well as child care, child support, energy, rental and burial assistance, all designed to help families and individuals toward financial self-sufficiency. Protection & Prevention services are provided via child, youth and adult protection services, along with community focused programming including veterans’ services, homeless services, and drug awareness campaigns. The department seeks to strengthen individuals, families and communities with the services provided and is dedicated to working with our partners in the community. We welcome volunteers and partner organizations in getting involved in our important work.
