Department of Health and Human Services

The Department of Health and Human Services team contributes to the lives and health of Nebraskans every day.  Our mission, “Helping people live better lives,” provides the motivation to make a difference.
 
Some DHHS programs impact all Nebraskans; for example, we educate and protect people through public health activities like ensuring clean and safe drinking water and we license and certify all health care professionals. We also touch our state’s most vulnerable citizens. Our services assist the elderly, low income and those with disabilities; we provide safety to abused and/or neglected children and vulnerable adults; and thousands of Nebraskans rely on the services of our ten 24-hour facilities.
 
At every level of our organization, our goal is to be honest, trustworthy, competent and loyal.  We strive to be transparent and accountable.  We’ve established a set of Values and Core Competencies to guide how we work to achieve our mission and effectively serve Nebraskans.
