Public contact for DHS services
Most of Minnesota's human service programs are administered locally, at the county level. Contact your county or regional human services, social services or family services office if you need information about applying for services, or if you have questions or concerns about an existing human service case. DHS does provide some direct services through State Operated Services and regional service centers for people who are deaf or hard of hearing.
Also note frequently asked questions for more information on commonly asked questions.
