Human Services seeks to stop abuse, neglect and exploitation of disabled and elderly adults and children.
You can help us with that process.
Disabled adults are vulnerable to abuse, neglect and exploitation. Adult Protective Services receives and evaluates reports to determine whether disabled adults are in need of protective services.
If you have reason to believe that an older or disabled adult has been abused, neglected or exploited, NC law requires you to contact Adult and Family Services.
Reporting parties are protected from civil and criminal liability.
Child Protective Services strives to ensure safe, permanent, nurturing families for children by protecting them from abuse and neglect while attempting to preserve the family unit.
If you suspect a child is being abused or neglected, contact the Human Services.
If you are a professional, you may make an online report.
