Pictures are worth a thousand words but there isn’t a photograph that will show you all that we do here at Human Support Services (HSS.)

Our services are complicated and not always pretty.

Suicide prevention, substance abuse treatment, job training for those with intellectual or developmental disabilities – these are not the billboard photo-worthy services that capture the hearts of the public with endearing images.

And yet, these services are life-changing, and in many cases – LIFE-SAVING.

We know that the services we’ve been providing for the last 47 years have made a significant, positive difference in the lives of those we serve. Even more, we know we have made a lasting impact in our entire Monroe County community.

We hope that you know it too.

Our clients are your neighbors, your friends – maybe even your child, sibling, or parent.

We come to you now with our hearts in our hands because WE NEED YOUR HELP. Like so many, we have suffered great losses in 2020.
