The Arizona Department of Economic Security (DES) makes Arizona stronger by helping all residents reach their potential through diverse programs that provide support and services to achieve and maintain self-sufficiency. In partnership with non-profit organizations, as well as state and federal partners, DES offers vital support to residents, including by providing access to food and healthcare, as well as providing job training, enforcing child support orders, assistance with rent, along with guidance accessing unemployment insurance and evaluating reports of abuse, neglect and abuse of vulnerable citizens ages 18 and older.
The DES Division of Aging and Adult Services (DAAS) assists at-risk Arizonans with meeting basic needs so they can live safely, with dignity and independence. Services and programs DAAS delivers reach diverse residents from homeless youths to older adults and those ages 18 and older who have disabilities. Adult Protective Services (APS), part of DAAS, accepts and reviews abuse, neglect, and exploitation claims on behalf of vulnerable adults. Its caseworkers take calls and reports online, 24 hours a day, and collaborate with law enforcement officials, the courts, and community-based service providers to facilitate services and help protect at-risk adults ages 18 and older. Community Service Programs (CSP) expand the safety net for vulnerable and at-risk individuals and families by offering assistance for survivors of domestic violence, along with those experiencing homelessness and food insecurity and refugees seeking help settling in Arizona, among other outreach.
Whether you need help or would like to be considered for employment with DES, we are looking forward to working with you to create a better future for everyone in the state. You can find DES office locations and learn more about its many programs and services here
