A Message From Dr. Holloway, Director of Harris Community Services Department
Dear Fellow Harris County Resident,
Welcome to the Harris County Community Services Department (CSD) website!
This website aims to provide information on the array of services that allow living to be more affordable and easier to manage for all residents of Harris County. You will find information here and on our affiliated websites, which are located below and under the
Links on the homepage.
Our services include spurring community investment through the provision of homebuying programs, partnering with community members and housing developers to build diverse housing options that uplift communities, and offering other assistance that supports community building. We also deliver programs to assist with rent, mortgage, and utility costs. Further, we are integrally involved with and support programs that avail our most vulnerable communities, and persons experiencing homelessness, to identify the resources and services they need.
Through our Disaster Recovery division, CSD provides relief for county residents who have incurred property loss due to hurricanes, floods, or other declared disasters. Other critical services we provide include public transportation in selected portions of the county and funeral services for those without family or who cannot afford burial on their own.
Ultimately, we are continuously exploring how we can do our part in fostering long-term sustainability in the communities which we have touched. We encourage you to peruse our website, review our programs and services, and partner with us to build a better tomorrow for the residents of Harris County.
It is sincerely our honor to deliver these services to you!
Dr. Adrienne Holloway
Community Services Department
