Social Services

The Department of Social Services is to help the citizens of Nelson County achieve a realistic and attainable level of self-sufficiency within a safe, healthy environment. We will accomplish this by using our strengths and resources in a caring, professional manner, while providing a network of protection, support, and temporary financial assistance.

The Nelson County Board of Social Services convenes for a regularly scheduled meeting every third Tuesday of the month at 1:00 pm in the Nelson County Department of Social Services conference room. The public is invited to attend.



Region Ten provides mental health, intellectual disability, crisis and substance use services for adults and children living in the City of Charlottesville and the counties of Albemarle, Greene, Fluvanna, Louisa and Nelson.Ā Established in 1969, Region Ten Community Services Board is part of a statewide network of 40 Community Service Boards working to provide mental health, intellectual disability and substance use services where they are needed – in the local community.
