Stokes County DSS strives to provide preventative and supportive services with competence and compassion. We are committed to protect our most vulnerable citizens (children, older adults, & disabled) from abuse, neglect, and exploitation.  Our services reach all areas of our county and we strive to assist families in obtaining knowledge, skills, and the support needed to remain or become strong, healthy, and self reliant.
