Human Services Plan

Human Service programs are essential to the growth and vitality of our community.  The City of Tucson strongly believes that investing in the prevention as well as the remediation of personal struggles, community members will have an opportunity to achieve well-being and lead productive and self-sufficient lives.  The City allocates federal funds (CDBG, ESG) and general funds to nonprofit agencies through a Request for Proposal (RFP) process that supports nonprofit agencies that deliver a broad range of services including case management, financial assistance, food assistance, transportation help, pro-social activities, shelter, skill development/training, mentoring, respite, and tutoring.

In October of this year, we started the process to update our Human Services plan. We began with a community conversation meeting where we invited knowledgeable representatives of non-profit agencies, government agencies and council office representatives asking them to assist us in prioritizing the needs of our community. This meeting was then followed up with two additional small group meetings where we outlined these needs and addressed the restrictions imposed by the funding sources. We also discussed the decline in funding which has been the trend for the past several years.

In order to ensure a broader participation, we then requested public and stakeholder feedback through the completion of an on-line survey that will assist us in prioritizing the issues discussed at the earlier meetings.  We received 124 responses.  Here are the results of that survey:

City of Tucson Human Services Plan Online Survey Results

In early March, we reconvened our committee who ranked the priorities based on earlier meetings and the survey results.  The results were outlined in our Human Services Plan.  Attached is a DRAFT Human Services Plan for 2016 - 2019.  This draft will be presented to Mayor and Council in April for review.
