Mission Statement

DSS Home>About Us

The Department of Social Services serves all individuals and families of Granville County.  Our primary goal is to enhance the quality of life in our community through programs and services that help the vulnerable, the aged, the young, the sick and the economically disadvantaged.  Through these programs, we assist and enable individuals and families to become self-sufficient, and through education and awareness, prevent or correct abuse, neglect, exploitation and inappropriate institutionalization.

Our commitment is to each individual and family we serve.  Our community and every citizen we serve depend on us to perform our duties in a respectful, confidential, timely and compassionate manner.  We advocate for the unmet needs of our most vulnerable population, continually strive to provide needed services and seek to have a lasting, positive impact on the lives of those with whom we interact.

For many individuals and families, we are their last hope and opportunity for stability and security.  We respond to their needs with personal care, and compassion.
