Allow Us To Reintroduce Ourselves...

You probably already noticed that things look a little different around here. This month, we're unveiling a new look for the Division of Community Services. With the various services that our division provides, we're introducing a fresh appearance to help Shelby County residents better understand and access the important resources available to them to improve their well-being, promote economic security, and independence. 

To highlight Community Service’s unified and connected departments that assist individuals and families during critical times of need, we have made some exciting improvements and changes to our identity including new logos, an improved website, and video, and this new eNews format, that showcases our comprehensive efforts and impact. 

There are many benefits to rebranding right now in the division, including:

  • Expanded ability to attract new clients that are eligible for services, but may not be familiar with services offered
  • Renewed, collaborative focus to achieve goals that are set by our team
  • Increased engagement and buzz that can generate expanded opportunities for services
  • Refreshed commitment and focus on our core mission, values and purpose of service to the community

For decades, Shelby County’s Division of Community Services has been devoted to serving the unique needs of elderly residents, veterans, young adults, women and families in our community. In times of need and crisis, we want all Shelby County residents to know and remember that there’s hope and that we’re here to assist. Together, we look forward to advancing our work and service to our community.
