The Human Services Division contracts with non-profit agencies to deliver services to low and moderate income households. The division works with City of Renton departments and divisions to improve the quality of life for city residents.

The City of Renton serves as a planner, facilitator, and funder for support systems that help people through economic and personal crises and provide low and moderate income persons with opportunities to succeed.

The City takes one of the following three roles in human services, depending on the need:

  • Planner: assess and anticipate needs and develop appropriate policy and program responses.
  • Facilitator: convene and engage others in community problem-solving to develop and improve services.
  • Funder: disburse federal Community Development Block Grant and General Fund dollars to support a network of services that respond to community needs.
