DHS and COVID-19
At Tennessee’s Department of Human Service (DHS) our mission is to build strong families by connecting Tennesseans to employment, education and support services. As we face COVID-19 together, DHS has adjusted our operations to help keep our customers and community healthier by reducing practices that make it easy to spread COVID-19. This includes limiting visits to our field offices to appointment-only in-person meetings and encouraging customers to use our phone and online resources.
The Tennessee Department of Human Services vision is to revolutionize the customer experience through innovation and a seamless network of services, even in the face of a pandemic like COVID-19. This means using new tools and adjusting operations to serve our customers.
