The Georgia Department of Human Services (DHS) was formed in July 2009 as part of the reorganization of the former Georgia Department of Human Resources, which had served Georgia since 1972. DHS delivers a wide range of human services designed to promote self-sufficiency, safety and well-being for all Georgians.


Parent and Children Services

The Georgia Department of Human Services touches the lives of all Georgians by providing more than 80 programs that enable older people to live at home longer; prevent children from developing lifelong disabilities; train poor single parents to find and hold jobs; help people with mental or physical disabilities live and work in their communities; and control the spread of disease.
