The Georgia Department of Human Services (DHS) delivers a wide range of human services designed to promote self-sufficiency, safety and well-being for all Georgians.
DHS formed in July 2009 as part of the reorganization of the former Georgia Department of Human Resources, which had served Georgia since 1972.
The department employs approximately 8,912 people, with an annual budget of $1.89 billion in State Fiscal Year 2021. DHS comprises three divisions – Aging Services, Child Support Services and Family & Children Services.
