The mission of the Local Management Board (LMB) is to foster the efficient delivery of government and private resources by developing an interagency system of care that addresses the wellbeing of children, youth and families in Baltimore County.

To achieve this mission, the Local Management Board will pursue the following strategies:

  • Identify and prioritize critical issues affecting children, youth and families in Baltimore County
  • Select evidence-based and best practice programs to address prioritized issues
  • Develop the financial resources to create and sustain selected programs
  • Build an interagency service delivery system to support program implementation
  • Provide ongoing program management and evaluation to ensure positive outcomes for Baltimore County children and families


Pursuant to the Human Services Article § 8-301 of the Annotated Code of Maryland and an Executive Order (PDF) signed by County Executive James T. Smith Jr. on June 28, 2005, the primary responsibility of the County's Local Management Board is to ensure the implementation of a local interagency service delivery system for children, youth and families. This interagency service system provides a continuum of care that is child, youth and family oriented, emphasizes prevention, early intervention and community based-services and gives priority to children, youth and families most at risk.

The County Executive appoints members to the LMB that represent both public and private interests and possess expertise on child, youth, and family-related issues. The LMB utilizes a Results-Based Accountability model in establishing and prioritizing efforts to improve child well-being in the jurisdiction. Specifically, decisions are made in the context of:

  • What we are trying to accomplish
  • What the data tells us
  • What partners we need
  • What the critical strategies are

By consistently posing these questions, the LMB and its partners will assure that resources are directed to areas of need.


The board meets quarterly on the first Monday of March, June, September and December, from 1:30 to 3 p.m. at the Sherwood House, Cromwell Valley Park, 12002 Cromwell Bridge Road, Parkville, Maryland 21234. View the meeting agendas and minutes below, which will open as PDFs in a new window.
