Explanation:
found following in the web:

'Governments on the WWW: Germany -
Landesversorgungsamt (State Office of Public Assistance).

I'm for ever confused about prepositions, hope 'for' is applicable.

State Social Services Office


Explanation:
I know 'Versorgung' stands vor: taking care of people's needs.
Land = State, it's not regional

I am not sure about 'Social Services', but it is as close as I can come.

Hope, it helps.
