What We Do

The Department of Health and Human Services manages the delivery of health- and human-related services for all North Carolinians, especially our most vulnerable citizens – children, elderly, disabled and low-income families. The Department works closely with health care professionals, community leaders and advocacy groups; local, state and federal entities; and many other stakeholders to make this happen.

Local Social Services Office

Every county in North Carolina has its own local social services agency. If you have questions, they have answers. They should also be your first call if you suspect a child is being abused or neglected. We're here to help you find contact information for your local county office.
