The Human Services Commission is an advisory body to the City Council and City Staff. This Commission is made up of five members of the community who serve four-year staggered terms. The Human Services Commission provides the City Council with grant funding recommendations for the Human Services Grants Program and the Federal Community Development Block Grants program. The Commission also collaborates with the Cities of Livermore and Pleasanton Human Service Commissions to address unmet needs identified in the Tri-Valley Human Services Needs Assessment. The City Council formed this Commission in 2013 as an outcome of the Human Services Task Force. The Human Services Commission Bylaws and Rules of Procedure govern the meetings and activities of the Commission.
The City of Dublin Human Services Commission is dedicated to outreach,
The Human Services Commission seeks solutions to the needs identified in the adopted needs assessment. The Commission will make recommendations to the Council on priorities for efforts that are consistent with the City Council's adopted mission, vision, and values.
The Commission evaluates, encourages, and advocates for the provision of human services in the community by making recommendations for organizational grant funding, educating residents on human services needs and promoting available services, supporting citizen awareness, engagement and volunteerism in addressing human service needs, and by collaborating with neighboring cities on regional human services solutions.
