As a participating member of the Governor’s Children’s Cabinet, the Department of Human Services is proud to support the launch of www.kidcentraltn.com
This new website provides information on health, education, development and support to Tennessee families, as well as a searchable State Services Directory. Families will also be able to create their own private profiles on this site, which will allow them to receive information that matters to the specific needs of their families.
Supporting kidcentral tn furthers the department’s vision to be a leader in effectively partnering with human services customers in establishing or re-establishing self-sufficiency to create a better quality of life.
Visit www.kidcentraltn.com to explore the site and share it with the Tennessee families you serve every day.
SCAM ALERT – Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)
The Department of Human Services (DHS) has been alerted of an email scam that tells current food stamp recipients that the program has undergone several changes, including being renamed to SNAP and there being an increase in benefits. The email asks for the Social Security Number of recipients as well as other identifying information to continue benefits.
Please do not respond to this email. This email is not from DHS. DHS does not request personal information by email.
DHS Mission Statement:
To offer temporary economic assistance, work opportunities, and protective services to improve the lives of Tennesseans.
