About the board

The Harford County Local Management Board is a program within the Harford County Government's Department of Community Services. Local Management Boards (LMBs) exist in each county in the state, working under the purview of the State of Maryland Children's Cabinet and the Governor's Office for Children (GOC), to improve the well-being of children and families.

The LMB brings together child serving agencies to organize and ensure services and supports are available to help families raise healthy, successful children from birth to young adulthood.


The mission of the Harford County Local Management Board is to assess community assets and needs, facilitate the development of services, and to monitor, evaluate, and continually improve outcomes for children, youth, and families.


The vision is for Harford County to be a community where all families share opportunities equally and all children are safe, healthy, valued, cared for, and respected.
