Socorro County offers several community services under the form of five departments, each with their own department head and administrators.
DWI & Community Alternatives Program
The Socorro County DWI Program has become active in collaborating with area agencies in providing information and referral to organizations and the public, as well as encouraging involvement, developing and engaging a viable and active DWI Council. The SC DWI program has partnered with organizations throughout the county playing an active role with Socorro County’s Health Council; SCOPE (Socorro County Options; Prevention and Education), City of Socorro Mayor’s Drug Task Force, and the SW Regional Substance Abuse Collaborative (SAC).
The Socorro County DWI Program has an active Advisory Council that has been working together toward educating and providing positive programming in Socorro County to combat DWI issues. This board is representative of the County's ethnicity and concerned organizations with DWI and alcohol abuse; has continually reviewed and followed the bylaws for the council ratified by the Socorro County Commissioners.

The Socorro County Senior Services Program offers services to local seniors such as congregate meals, home-delivered meals, transportation, assisted transportation, homemaker services, chore services, senior recreation opportunities, and volunteering.
For senior citizens who are interested in working with children, the Foster Grandparent Program (FGP) provides an invaluable service to schools and families across New Mexico. Senior volunteers work to help children develop skills, confidence, and strength to succeed in life. These volunteers, under the guidance of teachers and administrators, pass on the skills they have learned as they mentor children of all ages.
