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 is dedicated to providing guidance, information and access to Howard County veterans, military families, their dependents and survivors. We promote activities that serve veterans of all ages and collaborate 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. While our office is new, the County’s support for our military and veteran community is not.  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 410-313-6400 or
