Buncombe County Health & Human Services offers social work resources to assist adults with issues we all face as we age. From the licensing and monitoring of adult care homes to guardianship and adult foster care services, HHS offers a source of stability and safety for adults in Buncombe County.
The Intake Social Worker is available during hours of operation, Monday through Friday 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. to talk with any individual who either comes into the unit with questions or calls on the phone. The Adult Service Unit Social Workers are very knowledgeable about not only services provided directly by the Adult Service Unit but those of other community agencies.
The Adult Service Unit makes numerous referrals to other agencies as we work cooperatively to provide services to meet the needs of Buncombe County's residents.
