DeKalb County’s Human Services Department (HS) is responsible for leading a network of county professionals, programs, services and community partners that support the well-being of all DeKalb county citizens spanning over 750,000 persons. Our Human Services Staff & network provides a wide array of services that address the essential needs of families, including infants, school-aged children, youth, adults and seniors.  We do this through professional direct services  from Human Services staff, administration of grants, direct services subcontractors, and partnership programs.

Human Services is dedicated to Connecting Families to Services.
