Legislatively mandated in Maryland, Local Management Boards add value to local planning and decision making by assessing the needs of its community and, in collaboration with service providers, policy makers, community leaders and others, makes sure that children and families get the services and supports they need. Assuring a better quality of life and future for the families in Kent County goes beyond what any single agency or organization can accomplish on its own. As members of the community, adults, young adults, and children alike, we are all partners in the process. The Local Management Board for Children’s & Family Services of Kent County is here to bring different entities together to meet shared goals and assure a stronger future for our community. In the late 1980's, Maryland decided to change the way we support children and families. Maryland wanted a results-based approach that allowed decision-making to be done at a local level. A local governance group was created in each County and Baltimore City, called a Local Management Board (LMB). While diverse in membership and reflective of the communities that they serve, all 24 LMB's across the State of Maryland share the same goal: to ensure that service systems are responsive to the needs of children and families. The network of Local Management Boards partners with the State of Maryland through The Children's Cabinet, which is staffed by the Governor's Office for Children (GOC). This State-Local partnership supports local decision-making and action to build caring communities and move results for children and families in the right direction. Local Management Boards were created by State law "to ensure the implementation of a local, inter-agency service delivery system for children, youth and families." LMB's may either be a part of a local government or as a quasi-public nonprofit designated by local government to serve as the LMB. An LMB adds value to local planning and decision making by assessing the needs of its community and, in collaboration with service providers, policy makers, community leaders and others, makes sure that children and families get the services and supports they need. LMB's do not provide direct services. The LMB's role is to make sure that services are coordinated, of high quality, and achieve Maryland's goals for children and families.
