The Department of Human Services (organized under Wisconsin Statutes 46.23) provides State and Federally mandated human services to the most vulnerable and needy residents of Eau Claire County. Our services and programs have a direct impact on over 10% of the county's population.

Our programs serve:
 Abused and neglected children, adults and children with mental illness, adults and children with developmental disabilities, youth offenders, adults and youth with alcohol and other drug problems, and children, youth and adults in need of residential and institutional care.

We are also the agency responsible for the protection of vulnerable adults and adults at risk.

Our Employment and Economic Resource Unit administers the Wisconsin Works (W2) Program, as well as the Food Share (Food Stamp) Program, Medical Assistance, Child Care Assistance, Energy Assistance and Badger Care Plus.
