Our Mission

Lake County Service CenterLake County Health and Human Services envisions a healthy and safe community existing to promote optimal health, protect those who are unable to protect themselves and assist and support self-sufficiency.



The Lake County Health and Human Services Support Guide is intended to be an easy-to-use information resource to connect Lake County residents that are in need of help or support with services that are available to them in the local area.    

The guide is categorized by area of need. For example, if you need help with food, click on the “Food” link to see an alphabetical list of all organizations in the area that provide food support. Listings include a description of the service available as well as contact information for the organization providing the service, including a link to their website.

 An electronic copy of the guide can also be found on the home page of the Lake County website under the “Support Guide” tab.
