The National Association of Social Workers North Carolina Chapter submitted feedback to the Social Services Regional Supervision and Collaboration Working Group (SSWG) on proposed maps for regional support to Departments of Social Services.

Two different maps are being proposed; one with five regions and one with seven regions. View these two maps here.


Why are these maps being proposed?
In 2017, the NC General Assembly enacted legislation directing the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) to develop a plan for establishing regional offices. Once established, the regional offices would work closely with the central office in Raleigh to supervise and support county administration of social services programs. The legislation also created the SSWG and directed it to develop recommendations to help guide DHHS’s development of the plan. The SSWG’s recommendations are required to address the size, number, and location of the regions.
