Welcome to the Department of Community Resources and Services (DCRS)
The Department of Community Resources and Services represents more than just a name change for the Department of Citizen Services. We now have seven 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 will make it easier for Howard County residents to access the vital human services they need to thrive.
