Local Management Board PDF Print E-mail

Local Management Boards (LMBs) are the core entities that established in each of Maryland’s 24 jurisdictions to stimulate collaboration at the local level and to strengthen local services to children and families.
The Worcester County LMB’s primary role is to bring together existing resources at the local level and use them in innovative ways.  LMBs ensure implementation of localized, interagency service delivery systems for children, youth, and families.  All of this is accomplished successfully by partnering with the Government Office of Children.
