Office Of Veterans and Military Families


The Office of Veterans and Military Families recognizes the growing needs of the more than 20,000 veterans who call Howard County home. Our office provides guidance, information and access to Howard County veterans, military families, their dependents and survivors; promotes activities that serve veterans of all ages; and collaborates with other service providers to address more complex issues. With the various programs and services offered within our government, nonprofit and business community, we assist in the navigation of available resources.  The Department of Community Resources and Services “No Wrong Door” policy can help identify scams targeting military members, assist a disabled veteran or veteran caregiver with services, help a homeless veteran find housing, and assist a relocating military family with childcare options. If you need assistance, please reach out to the Howard County Office of Veterans and Military Families at 410-313-0821 or veterans@howardcountymd.gov.
