The Minnesota Department of Human Services provides Minnesotans with a variety of services intended to help people live as independently as possible.
The Minnesota Department of Human Services is an organization of individuals with a commitment to bettering the lives of Minnesotans. While DHS employees perform different jobs and duties, such as research-analyses, direct caregiving, program administration, fraud prevention, licensing oversight, plant management and human resources, we share a belief that when Minnesotans help other Minnesotans, we create a brighter future for all of us.

Glenace Edwall, director of the Department's Children’s Mental Health Division, received the 2013 Diversity in Leadership Award from the Minnesota Psychological Association at its 77th Annual Convention April 5. The award recognizes exhibiting great leadership, courage, effort and commitment to diversity in order to make a difference in the face of systemic barriers.
Each year, the Diversity in Leadership Award is given to an individual who has broken down these systemic barriers and who has promoted diversity competence through practice, teaching, advocacy and research. The award is generated through nominations from the association’s diversity committee. Nominations are based on recommendations and research from multiple sources, including colleagues, peers and direct observation.
