The mission of Sherburne County Social Services is to provide human service programs that are designed to protect and enhance the lives of vulnerable populations (such as the developmentally disabled, children in need of protection, vulnerable adults, mentally ill, and others).
Specific services are tailored toward assisting individuals with normalized living as well as facilitating the highest level of functioning for individuals and families. Prevention of victimization and abuse are integral to several of our services.
As a public service agency, each public assistance program is designed to provide a minimal level of family subsistence, adequate nutrition through food support, and medical care for all eligible citizens. Programs that are designed to assist individuals from public assistance to competitive employment are encouraged and available.
