Since 1992, the Montgomery County Collaboration Council  for Children, Youth, and Families has brought together public and private service providers to address the needs of Montgomery County, Maryland’s children under the age of 18 and their families. One in four county residents fits this youthful profile.

Designated as a Local Management Board by the State of Maryland, the Collaboration Council’s purpose is to be a catalyst for agencies and other groups to collaborate to achieve positive results in the community.

Now a quasi-public non-profit, our work continues to grow and change to meet the ever-evolving needs of the county’s residents. Our work is led by a diverse and dedicated Board of Directors who represent the community we serve.


To promote the well-being of children, youth and families through collaborative partnerships.


To nurture a caring Montgomery County community with stable families, in a place where children are healthy, safe, ready to learn, successful in school, and prepared for life.


Every three years, we conduct a Community Needs Assessment that informs our areas of focus and community outcomes. You can request the 2020 Community Needs Assessment here.
