Our Focus


The mission of the Tioga County Department of Human Services is to protect, serve and improve the quality of life for Tioga County's citizens by effectively managing the county's human services programs and resources.


How did we create a vibrant, flexible system of human services from an inefficient, obsolete model? In a nutshell, we: consolidated administration; integrated multiple human service programs; and fused the parts to create one unified agency offering holistic services. Now, instead of focusing on response to crisis, we focus on prevention. Instead of focusing on funding sources, we focus on people.



 The Fusion Formula of Human Services

  • offers clients a one-stop shop for
    human service needs
  • cuts costs
  • creates family-centered services
  • streamlines administration
  • reduces paperwork
  • focuses on prevention
  • minimizes duplication and closes gaps in services
  • improves communication among staff, clients and communities
  • helps us determine needs holistically while complying with state and federal mandates
