The Department of Health and Human Services provides important and, oftentimes, life-sustaining services to Nebraskans. Our mission, "Helping people live better lives," provides the motivation to find ways to effectively provide these services and make a difference in the lives of so many people.
It’s what we do every day, whether we’re educating and protecting people through public health efforts; assisting the elderly, the poor and those with disabilities; providing safety to abused and/or neglected children or vulnerable adults; or serving those in need of 24-hour facility care. There are challenges to meet and successes to celebrate. In the end, the Department serves, and is accountable to, the public.
