Howard County Department of Citizen Services

New DCS logo web 

As the County’s human service agency, the Department of Citizen Services touches the lives of children and youth, their parents, people with a disability, consumers who have complaints about a business, individuals in crisis, and older adults – not to mention the child care and assisted living providers who receive training, the organizations seeking information to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act, and many others.  

Our mission is to ensure that Howard County residents have the resources they need to grow, thrive, and live with dignity.

The Department of Citizen Services is comprised of the Office of Children’s Services, Office of Consumer Affairs, and the Office on Aging. Other components of the Department include:  Disabilities Services, the Community Service Partnerships program (which provides County funding to non-profit human services agencies), and Homeless Services.
