The Georgia Department of Human Services (DHS) serves more than 2 million Georgians and employs approximately 8,912 people. With an annual budget of $1.89 billion, DHS delivers a wide range of services that protect and enhance the lives of Georgia’s most vulnerable residents.
DHS comprises three divisions — the Division of Aging Services (DAS), the Division of Child Support Services (DCSS) and the Division of Family & Children Services (DFCS). Since 2014, DFCS has reported directly to the governor. DHS also maintains 13 administrative offices that provide a variety of support functions — from constituent services and training to information technology and fiscal management.
