The Queen Anne’s County Partnerships for Children serves as the primary structure for the County to develop and maintain an effective and efficient system of services for children, adolescents and families. Emphasis is placed on prevention, early intervention and community-based service. Priority is given to children and families most at-risk. The Partnership primarily assesses plans, coordinates, monitors and evaluates. It does not function as a direct service provider.

Local Management Board

The Queen Anne’s County Community Partnerships for Children is a Maryland Local Management Board. Local Management Boards were created in 1989 through an Executive Order creating the Subcabinet for Children, Youth and Families. Initially Queen Anne’s County was represented through a multi-county Local Management Board. Recognizing the diverse needs of each jurisdiction and their desire to receive individual attention for their children and families, the Board disbanded in 1997. During the summer of 1997, the County Commissioners approved the Queen Anne’s County Local Management Board as an arm of County government.
