Established in 1971, Eastern Shore Community Services Board is part of a statewide network of 40 Community Service Boards working to provide mental health, developmental disability, substance use, and prevention services where they are needed – in the local community.
We offer a wide range of person-centered services designed to support individuals with developmental disabilities in living a safe, healthy, and productive life as independently as possible.
Our Emergency Services are designed to meet a person’s immediate needs, assure their safety, and connect them to appropriate and timely interventions, in the least restrictive environments.
