DSS Customer Connection

Customer Connection is the main call center for the Mecklenburg County Department of Social Services. You can reach us by telephone 704-336-3000. Speaking to an agent directly is the best way to meet your needs. Agents are available Monday - Friday, 8 a.m. - 5 p.m.

If you are unable to reach a Customer Connection agent by telephone, we may be able to help you via one of the online request forms (choose a topic below to see if a online form is available). To avoid duplication of efforts, if you have already spoken with someone by phone, please do not submit an online request.
