Community Invited to Tour New DHS Building, Learn About Service Programs
LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – The Department of Human Services (DHS) Polk County staff is now housed in a brand new office at 1802 Highway 71 North in Mena.
Staff will showcase the new facility during an open house on Friday, November 16, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.
At the open house there will be several refreshments for visitors. Staff members will give tours of the office. Also, tables will be set up where people can learn about, or apply, for DHS programs.
“This open house is about the residents of Polk County. We as DHS are here to serve the people in this area,” said Carolyn Strickland, administrator of the Polk County office. “Yes, we want to show everyone our new building. But it’s important that our visitors also learn about the outstanding programs DHS offers.”
“We’re confident that once people tour this new office, and see how inviting it is, they’ll be willing to come see us when they need our help,” Strickland said. “It’s going to be a fun and informative event for everybody involved.”
