Mandated Reporter Portal
In emergent cases call 911

VaCPS is the Virginia Department of Social Services (VDSS) innovative and secure website which allows mandated reporters the ability to expedite the submission of a report of suspected child abuse or neglect directly to the VDSS State Hotline.

VDSS knows partnering with mandated reporters across the Commonwealth is essential to the safety, permanency, and well-being of Virginia's children. Submitting a report regarding possible child maltreatment is the first step to begin the helping process. VDSS values your commitment to Virginia's children and your desire to strengthen families in the Commonwealth.

Social Services after-hours drop box:

Social Services have installed an after-hours drop box located outside of our office entrance. Due to the limited access of public transportation for county residents, the drop box allows customers who cannot visit the office during working hours, the ability to submit required documents in a timely manner. Items placed in the box are received the next business day


In accordance with the Federal law and U.S. Department of Agriculture policy, this institution is prohibited from discriminating on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, age, religion, political beliefs, or disability.
