Bergen County Department of Human Services

During Women's History Month, the Bergen County Department of Human Services, along with our Commission on the Status of Women and Junior Commission, celebrate everything that women have accomplished throughout the years.  This year, we are “Celebrating Women Who Tell Our Stories”.  We honor and thank you for empowering women by continually using your strength, voice, and creativity to tell stories that educate, inspire, and entertain audiences throughout the County of Bergen and the  world.  Congratulations to our 2023 Bergen County Women’s History Month honorees!

The Department of Human Services was established in 1987 to provide services in support of individuals and families. A skilled professional staff works within six divisions to provide services that include clinical, residential, and correction services for youth, coordination of child care, domestic violence intervention, information and referral, counseling, and assistance. The department also contracts with over 50 community-based agencies to provide specialized services to residents in need.
