The Mission of the Halifax County Department of Social Services is to provide to Halifax County citizens, and any others who may be in our county, specific limited services which are designed to ensure protection from abuse, neglect, and exploitation; to enable some individuals to become self-supporting; to enable everyone to be as self-sufficient and independent as possible; and to ensure out of the home placement when this becomes necessary. The staff is committed to serving individuals and families in a respectful, confidential, timely, efficient, and compassionate manner and to being responsible managers of all the programs and funds entrusted to us. We recognize and encourage the rights of all individuals to seek and receive or refuse services in accordance to what they believe to be in their own best interest. We believe that we have a professional and moral responsibility to assist in this process. We recognize the importance of intra and inter-agency teamwork in establishing linkages which allow us to appropriately and adequately serve the county residents, and fulfill the mission of the agency.
