Human Services

Mission Statement


The mission of Lebanon Human Services is to relieve and maintain those in our community who are economically disadvantaged and unable to sustain the basic needs of food, shelter, and emergency medical assistance. Further, it is our objective to build and keep strong our relationships with local, state, and federal agencies so that those in need receive a well-rounded, well-managed plan to return to financial self-sufficiency. General Assistance is provided to all eligible persons in a respectful and fiscally responsible manner, fostering dignity and self-sufficiency while protecting the welfare of the citizens and taxpayers of the City of Lebanon.
