Human Services provides multiple services to all age groups from prenatal to senior citizens. The department's focus is primarily on vulnerable and "at risk" clients, such as low-income families, children in need of protection, the aged, and the disabled.
In addition to financial, medical, energy and food assistance, Park County Department of Human Services provides child welfare services for children and families and services for vulnerable adults.
COVID-19 Emergency Assistance
The Park County Emergency Assistance Team is available 24/7 to assist with local information and resources to help citizens with the challenges of Covid19.
Park County Human Services will be open to serve the public from 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. (closed for lunch from noon to 1:00 p.m.) Monday through Thursday. Please call 303-816-5939 to speak with a member of Human Services.
All members of the public must wear a face mask while in the county buildings. While we do have the ability to do in person interviews (utilizing a plexi-glass barrier) we do encourage the use of online or paper applications. We have paper applications in both Fairplay and Bailey offices. For the safety of our employees and the public, we do require no more than 2 people in our lobby waiting area at one time.
