Food, groceries, utility assistance, special seasonal needs, disaster relief coordination and residential homeless shelters – the Cleveland County Social Services office has it all.

Through case management, direct support, partnerships with other community agencies and through corporate and private partnerships, Social Services helps individual’s at their point of need.

Our task in this community is to help clients address their unique needs, and to help them move towards self-sufficiency and self determination. Our goals are not numbers, rather the client’s achievement.

Programs:

Food Pantry: Open Monday – Thursday from 1 p.m. – 3 p.m., we provide food once every 30 days. In order to receive assistance you must bring an ID, proof of residency, proof of income and complete an initial intake form.

Clothing Assistance: As funding permits, individuals may receive a clothing voucher once a year which provides three pants, three tops and a pair of shoes or coat. In order to receive assistance you must bring an ID, proof of residency, proof of income and complete an initial intake form.

Utility Assistance: Phone requests are accepted and screened for eligibility on the first Tuesday of each month beginning at 9:30 a.m. Qualified individuals then receive an appointment. The number of appointments depends on the type and amount of funding for that particular month. We assist with electric and gas bills but not water. If funds allow, we accept additional requests on the following Tuesday.

ID & Birth Certificate Assistance: For individuals who are homeless with no income, we assist them with obtaining an ID or retrieving their birth certificate. Individuals must either be staying in The Salvation Army Shelter or bring a referral from a partner agency stating the individual’s homeless status.

Lice Treatment: We assist with the removal of lice. Individuals must have a referral from the Health Department, proof of income and proof of residency.

We do not assist with rent, prescriptions or motel stays.
