aboutcommunity human services

Community Human Services is a 501c(3) public nonprofit and Joint Powers Authority providing substance abuse and mental health counseling and recovery services to middle and low income individuals and families in Monterey County, California.

Virtually all of the work we do at CHS addresses underlying conditions or root causes of personal, family and community problems, whether it’s addiction, domestic violence, mental illness, emotional health, homelessness, child abuse, or any number of problems that people have trouble solving on their own.

We help our clients develop new skills and support networks, learn new behaviors, and learn how to utilize community resources. Ultimately, our services affect change in the community by reducing the need for social services, law enforcement, hospitals, jails and prisons, and by improving school attendance, performance and social outcomes for children.
