The Local Management Board

Local Management Boards (LMB) were established during the mid-1990s in an effort to change the way services were provided to children and families in their communities. There is an LMB in each of Maryland’s 24 jurisdictions, charged by the Governor's Office for Children to convene a collaborative board to manage the implementation of a local, inter-agency, community based human service delivery system for children, youth and families. LMB’s are neutral conveners and trusted brokers who have the ability to identify needs and fill gaps to ensure services are delivered in a comprehensive, cross-agency, system of care.
