Human Services

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.

This summer DeKalb senior centers reopened to a limited number of senior participants, on limited days and times, following  COVID prevention protocols. All onsite senior programs have been modified to include social distancing parameters which must be followed. Registration is required to attend in person classes and events.

Please note that senior participants must wear masks while in the building (except when eating or performing strenuous exercises).  Classes and programming will continue to be offered virtually for all senior centers.
