Community & Human Development

Purpose and Mission


The Community and Human Development Department is dedicated to serving El Paso's residents and neighborhoods.

Our efforts are focused on benefiting those of low and moderate income by partnering with local, federal and state agencies to provide decent housing, a suitable living environment, neighborhood improvements, senior volunteer opportunities, small business assistance and preventing homelessness in our community.


Serve as catalyst for community partnerships, collaboration and change that will revitalize low income neighborhoods, enhance human services, promote accessibility, expand housing opportunities, and generally improve the quality of life for low and moderate income persons.
