Community Services Resources

  • Mission
Koochiching County Community Services is directed by law to protect vulnerable adults and children, to help the elderly and disabled, and to assist those citizens whose personal or family resources are not adequate to meet their basic human needs. In partnership with other public and private agencies, we are committed to help our citizens to attain the maximum degree of self-sufficiency consistent with their individual capabilities. To these ends:
  • We will assure public accountability and trust through responsible use of available resources.
