A message from the Director …

Welcome to the Department of Human Services’ redesigned website. Our mission at DHS is to improve the quality of life of all Arkansans by protecting the vulnerable, fostering independence and promoting better health. It is my hope that this site aides us in that mission by making our services easily accessible and by providing you ample information about our divisions, programs and initiatives. You will find that DHS is involved in virtually all aspects of life. Whether we are assisting the elderly, the poor and those with disabilities; providing safety to abused and neglected children; regulating nursing homes; supporting high quality early childhood education and child care programs; or offering other forms of aid to our fellow Arkansans, we are always here for you. Thank you for visiting us online.

DHS Director John Selig
