The mission of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is to invest in the social capitol of the community by assisting residents in achieving self-sufficiency and quality in their lives through the delivery and coordination of services. HHS oversees the Divisions of the Library, Elder Affairs, Health, Workforce Development, Veterans Affairs, and Community Schools and Recreation. HHS staffs the following boards: Board of Health, Council on Elder Affairs, Library Trustees, Community Schools Advisory Board, Chelsea Human Rights Commission, and Weed and Seed Steering Committee. The Administration of HHS assists residents who come to City Hall seeking help after they have exhausted all other options. These have included individuals who are homeless, disabled, hungry and in need of work. Staff have spent hundreds of hours collectively in trying to locate housing, food, clothing, medical care, shelter, legal advocacy, jobs and other emergency constituent needs.
