​It is the mission of The Human Services Board to provide the citizens of Forest, Oneida, and Vilas Counties with chemical dependency, developmental disabilities, and mental health services.  The Board is, therefore, dedicated to ensuring a range and quality of services that will:

  • Assist people to free themselves from the destructive abuse of alcohol and other drugs that diminish their ability to assume full responsibility for their own lives.


  • Assist people to fulfill their human potential even though mentally challenged or otherwise developmentally disabled.


  • Assist people to achieve the kind of mental health and psychological wholeness that will enable them to function more creatively and constructively, both as individuals and as members of the community.


  • It is further the mission of The Human Services Board to encourage activities that will prevent people from becoming disabled by chemical dependency, mental illness or developmental disabilities.
