Charles County Dept. of Social Services

  • 5 people are interested

County Social Services boards provide valuable public services which help prevent homelessness and improve self-sufficiency for vulnerable individuals and families. These efforts are consistent with the work of local Department of Social Services.

Such Boards assist in providing additional services not already available through the mandated programs funded by government funds including such things as:

Medical supplies and services to help the elderly remain in their homes;

Summer camps, school clothing and supplies for low-income children; and

Parenting, education and job placement services to help families thrive

These Advisory boards provide services to thousands of Marylanders each year, thanks to the support of generous businesses and individuals who regularly donate funds and attend fundraising events.
