Housing & Human Services Director

Robert Williams joined the Boulder County Department of Housing and Human Services as our new director on January 26, 2021.

Robert comes to us with extensive knowledge of the many areas addressed under our Housing & Human Services umbrella. He has served in state and local government offices, providing leadership and direction to child welfare and child protection programs, health and human service programs at the county level, and financial compliance oversight in a government setting. He began his career as a case worker and knows firsthand being on the front line working with children, families, and adults in complex social situations.

Prior to joining BCDHHS, Robert most recently served as the Chief Program and Policy Officer in the Bureau of Behavioral Health for the Illinois Department of Healthcare and Family Services. In this capacity, he was responsible for ensuring quality behavioral healthcare coverage at sustainable costs and empowering people to make sound decisions about their behavioral health well-being. In addition to providing direction and leadership to all Bureau operations pertaining to program and policy development and oversight of a $2.5 billion budget, Robert has focused his role on implementing solutions to providing comprehensive behavioral health services to children in out of home care, enhancing the behavioral health supports offered through Medicaid, and improving outcomes for children and youth through a multidisciplinary approach including public health and school-based interventions.

Robert has a B.A. in Political Science from the University of Wisconsin, Madison, a Master of Science in Government Accountancy from Rutgers University, and a Master of Science in Social Work from the University of Wisconsin, Madison.
