About Cass County and Cass County HSZ
The North Dakota Department of Human Services, the North Dakota Association of Counties and local social services leaders worked together with the support of Gov. Doug Burgum and state lawmakers to redesign social services to better serve North Dakotans and deliver effective services in a more efficient way. That redesign was implemented in January 2020 when the 46 individual county social service agencies became 19 Human Service Zones. These Human Service Zones serve as the first point of contact for people who need access to the foundations of well-being – economic, behavioral, and physical health services. Through the Human Service Zones, North Dakotans now have the ability to go to any social service office and receive the same quality services across the state.
This position is located in Fargo, North Dakota, which has been recognized in multiple top 100 towns for livability. Home to several universities, Fargo contains approximately 25% of the state’s population; and is incredibly diverse from new Americans to a strong rural agricultural community outside of the metro area. Fargo is rich in industry and opportunity.
The Cass County HSZ is the largest zone in the state. This zone has the benefit of a very robust community network, strong county infrastructure, and local services that other more rural zones would only dream of. As a result, the zone participates in fantastic community collaborations. The HSZ governance board is comprised of engaged county commissioners and community leaders. Furthermore, the HSZ is backed with resources from the state’s largest agency – Department of Human Services.

In addition, the HSZ is made up of dedicated, hardworking professionals committed to managing a tremendous workload and treating all clients with respect and dignity. This is a unit that will thrive with strong leadership and a commitment to providing clear direction.
