Arkansas Department of Human Services
The Department of Human Services (DHS) is Arkansas’ largest state agency, with more than 7,500 employees working to ensure citizens are healthy, safe and enjoying a high quality of life.
The agency’s skilled and passionate staff cares for Arkansans of all ages. Often, that means providing a safety net for our most vulnerable residents. Families or individuals facing difficult times may need assistance to get back on their feet. People needing support will find at least one local DHS office in each of the state’s 75 counties.
