Learn More About DHS

The Arkansas Department of Human Services (DHS) is a place where we tackle big social issues with compassion, courage, respect, integrity, and action. This is not always easy, but the work we do is so important — to our neighbors and people in every community in the state. It matters because we:

Whether our employees are processing applications, answering phones, conducting investigations, crunching numbers, working directly with clients, supporting other staff, or being part of a team to make big policy changes, we know that we could not accomplish our mission without each and every one of them.

We are not just a government agency. We are a tight-knit community of more than 7,000 strong. We push each other to be better, to think outside the box to solve problems, and to never be OK with “good enough.” Together we improve the quality of life of all Arkansans by protecting the vulnerable, fostering independence, and promoting better health.

We do all of this work through eight divisions and seven support offices headquartered in Little Rock and in 80 offices across the state. There is at least one office in every county.

Thank you for visiting DHS online. We look forward to serving you.

We care. We act. We change lives.
