​​Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family Services

The Cabinet for Health and Family Services is home to the state's human services and health care programs. The cabinet is one of the largest in state government, with nearly 8,000 full and part-time employees. It has a presence in all 120 Kentucky counties and serves every resident of all walks of life from birth to end-of-life.

The cabinet is led by Secretary Eric Friedlander.

Our mission is to be a diverse and inclusive organization providing programs, services and supports that protect and promote the health and well-being of all Kentuckians and their communities. The roadmap for realizing our mission may be found in the cabinet's 2022-2026 Strategic Plan.
