About Us

Mission

The Mission Statement of Delta Human Resource Agency is to promote the development of human resources in Tipton, Lauderdale and Fayette counties through effective and efficient delivery of human services. It is dedicated to ensure that the best use is made of resources available by networking and coordinating our services with other agencies in our area.


The Delta Human Resource Agency was created on December 18, 1989 and chartered as a not-for-profit agency on January 18, 1990.

Our goal is to promote the development of human resources in the Delta District through effective and efficient delivery of human services. 

We have continued to serve the economically disadvantaged, elderly and handicapped persons in the counties of Tipton, Lauderdale and Fayette and in rural Shelby with the Rural Transportation program. 

Our population has grown and so has the number of those needing assistance. We have a dedicated staff working together to improve others' quality of life.

Delta HRA was created by state and local elected officials to serve the three counties of Tipton, Lauderdale and Fayette in accordance with provisions of the Tennessee Human Resource Agency Act of 1973 ad amended (Title 13, Chapter 26, Tennessee code annotated).

Delta HRA is funded through federal and state grants, local/city/county funding, donations, volunteers and United Way.


Delta HRA is an equal opportunity employer.

Delta HRA is an EEO organization, funded in part by the Tennessee State Department of Human Services.
