It's difficult to tell what is being asked here. This question is ambiguous, vague, incomplete, overly broad, or rhetorical and cannot be reasonably answered in its current form.

When speaking of their physical location, you would say Human Services in New York.
When speaking of their service coverage, you would say Human Services for New York.
When speaking of who owns or operates them, you would say Human Services of New York. (This generally implies that New York runs the services on behalf of its employees or citizens. Alternatively, if you wanted to emphasize who provides the services, you could say Human Services by New York, which implies that other people besides New Yorkers can take advantage of the services.)
