Monmouth County SHRAP Program (10/23/2013)

The Monmouth County Board of Chosen Freeholders established the Monmouth County Department of Human Services in 1987. It reflects a long standing commitment by the Board of Chosen Freeholders to address the needs of our most vulnerable citizens and those of us who may be struggling with an unexpected event and don't know where to turn. Over 140,000 Monmouth County residents receive one or more services from our department each year.

It is the mission of the Monmouth County Department of Human Services to enhance the quality of life of people in Monmouth County through the planning, purchasing and delivery of human services by highly effective employees in partnership with public and private organizations. We are committed to providing service with respect, care and accountability.
