Welcome to the Department of Community Resources and Services (DCRS)

The Department of Community Resources and Services has eight offices to address the needs of multiple generations, tailor services to different cultural values, and promote full inclusion for individuals with disabilities. Plus, our No Wrong Door approach makes it easier for Howard County residents to access the vital human services they need to thrive.

The Howard County Community Resources Campus on Patuxent Woods Drive has centralized the delivery of services to the County’s most vulnerable residents. By co-locating the Department of Community Resources and Services, the Department of Housing and Community Development, the Office of Human Rights and the Community Action Council of Howard County, the county has made it much more convenient for residents to obtain the support they need.
