Organization - Governmental


The Washington County Department of Social Services is a field office of the Maryland Department of Human Resources. It is the mission of the Department to aggressively pursue opportunities to assist people in economic need, increase prevention efforts and protect vulnerable children and adults. Our vision is a Maryland where people independently support themselves and their families and where individuals are safe from abuse and neglect. To this end, the Department is responsible for a continuum of human service programs which must be assured to all in need. These programs are funded primarily by Federal and State government. The county Commissioners allocate funds for programs to meet specific local needs not met by other governmental sources.
