Information on Services

The mission of Caldwell County Department of Social

Services is two-fold:

 (1) To help families and individuals optimize their selfreliance

and self-sufficiency, and

 (2) To protect vulnerable people -- particularly children,

older adults, and the disabled -- from abuse, neglect,

and exploitation.

Families and individuals who are able to take care of

their own needs -- financial, social, and

emotional -- strengthen the community. Also, the protection

of vulnerable populations, such as children, the elderly, and

the disabled, assures a healthier future. The roles and tasks

of employees of the Department are all

designed to contribute to these ends.
