Howard County Local Care Team


The Local Care Team provides a forum for families of children and youth with intensive needs to access information on available community resources and services. The team is comprised of representatives from the major child serving agencies, as well as a parent advocate. The group reviews information about the child/youth and then works together with the family to identify programs and services that can best assist child and family needs (serving youth ages three to 21).

If you are interested in getting connected to the Local Care Team, please complete a referral here. If you have questions or need assistance completing a referral, please contact Mary Ndukwe at 410-313-6552 (voice/relay) or mndukwe@howardcountymd.gov
