Polk County DHS changing location


The staff of the Polk County Arkansas Department of Human Services (DHS) is moving from their current office at 606 Pine Street in Mena to a new building located at 1802 Highway 71 North in Mena.

The move will be complete and the office will be open for business as usual on Wed., Oct. 10 at 8 a.m. and the facility on Pine Street will be closed.

The location is the only change that the office will be making. During the transition to the new facility and after the move clients can continue to reach staff members at their current phone number.

“We’re definitely excited about having a new building to work in,” said DHS Polk County Administrator Carolyn Strickland. “However, what means even more to us is that the new office will have larger meeting rooms, a better client waiting area, and cool family visitations rooms. DHS offers a wide variety of services. Typically, people come see us when they need help. So it’s important that they come to a building that looks and feels welcoming. We’re ready to serve our clients and welcome them to our new office.”
