About Social Services

The Chesterfield-Colonial Heights Department of Social Services is a combined agency serving both the County of Chesterfield and City of Colonial Heights. Our mission is to provide benefits and services to the citizens of both communities based on programs established by local, state and federal laws and policies. Some examples of these programs are child and adult services, foster care and adoption services, employment services, SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) and TANF (Temporary Assistance for Needy Families). The Board, comprised of nine members representing both localities, governs the Department of Social Services.
