WELCOME TO DAVIDSON COUNTY SOCIAL SERVICES


Since the mid-1920's, the Department has administered many state and federally funded programs to meet the needs of low income and at-risk families. These programs include Food and Nutritional Services, Medicaid, Work First, and Child Care Subsidy.  The agency is also mandated to provide Child Welfare and Adult Services through Child Protective Services, Foster Care and Adoptions, as well as Adult Protective Services Programs.

Mission Statement

The Davidson County Department of Social Services is dedicated to providing opportunities, which assure personal dignity and self-sufficiency for all citizens.

We assist individuals and families in reaching these goals through economic support programs, which ensure that food, shelter, medical care and other basic needs are met.  Social work services promote self-determination, enhance family functioning and protect children and disabled adults from abuse, neglect and exploitation.

We advocate for services that improve the quality of life for individuals and families, affirm each individual’s worth, and encourage personal responsibility in decision-making.  We believe that in helping others, we create a stronger community for everyone.
