Howard County Local Children's Board

The Howard County Local Children's Board is comprised of public and private members working collaboratively to ensure a strong continuum of services for families and children in our community. Also known as the Local Management Board, there is a functioning board in all 24 jurisdictions in Maryland. We work in partnership with the Governor's Office for Children to ensure children grow up healthy, secure and successful.

Recently, The Board has identified priorities and designed strategies to help ensure Howard County is a place where all children thrive. Based on data gathered, the following child well-being results have been chosen for Howard County:

  • Children Safe in Their Homes and Communities
  • Children Successful in School

The Board provides funding, planning, program development and implementation, and technical assistance to programs and services working to improve outcomes for Howard County's children.  The Board is supporting many initiatives including:
