Welcome to Arlington County's Department of Human Services web site.
Human services are for our entire community. If you have a child in a day care center or public school in Arlington, if you eat in Arlington restaurants, or shop at our grocery stores, you are a beneficiary of Arlington human services.
At our web site you will learn about services to the general public, to children, and to older adults and people with disabilities. We have also included extensive information about services targeted to people who are disadvantaged. We want information available to clients as they access the web through schools, the public libraries, and other public access sites. We also want taxpayers to know what we are doing with their money. Recently, we have adopted performance measures as a program management tool -- you can see some of the results here.
For a more in-depth description of the services we provide, please feel free to visit these areas of interest:
Ultimately, all of what we do is designed to support our overall community. What we do is aimed at supporting Arlington County's goal of being a learning, caring community. Learn more about the department's vision, mission and values.
If you have suggestions for information which would make the site more helpful, or if you need more information about items you read about here, please let me know.
