Connecting You To... Your City, Your Community, Your Neighbors

Mission: To strengthen ties in the community by reaching out through education, outreach and civic engagement.

Who we are: The Community Services Division is responsible for the City of Auburn's Human Services, Neighborhood and Veterans Services.

Auburn Building an Diverse Community
As our community is becoming more diverse with its unique blend of cultural, ethnic, generational, religious, and economic backgrounds, we are excited to find the best ways to work together and provide equitable access to community resources.  
As our community continues to expand we want to be even more proactive in maintaining inclusive activities that build bridges of common interests while maintaining respect for our unique differences.
