In order to accomplish its mission and objectives, the Division of State Service Centers (DSSC) administers a number of programs and services, as well as a statewide network of safe, secure, well-maintained and efficiently operated Service Centers. These centers, 15 in all, serve as multi-service facilities in which various public and private agencies are collected. The goal of the centers is to promote access to Delaware's health and human service system. Annually, more than 600,000 visits are made to State Service Centers throughout Delaware. Based on demographic analysis and community outreach, each service center provides a mix of services appropriate to the community it serves. There are more than 160 programs and services delivered through the State Service Centers. For more information about specific Service Centers and the services they provide, access the State Service Center Brochure.
The Division's programs include services for individuals and families, services and support for communities, and emergency services. The Division also administers the State Office of Volunteerism which offers both volunteer and service opportunities, provides technical assistance for community volunteer programs, and sponsors volunteer recognition events.
Additionally, the Division publishes the "Directory of Human Services for Delaware" which can be found on our Publications page.
