Bladen County North Carolina


Bladen County Health and Human Services Agency

"Better Living Starts Here!"

Welcome to the Department of Health and Human Services! Our agency consists of four departments—Health, Social Services, the Division on Aging, and the Bladen Area Rural Transportation System (BARTS). Together, we provide a wide range of services designed to help you in each stage of life.

The Health Department is focused upon the protection of your health through services such as prenatal care, immunizations, restaurant sanitation inspections, rabies prevention, and emergency preparedness and response activities. Our primary goal is to reduce and prevent the occurrence of chronic diseases in our citizens.  We would love to tell you how you can protect yourself through adopting a healthy lifestyle.

The Department of Social Services is here for you when you need a helping hand. Our friendly staff work daily with our state and federal partners to protect and assist needy families and children. Through using a wide range of programs, we strive to put Bladen County families on a path to self-sufficiency.

The Division on Aging helps older adults to maintain as much independence as possible by providing meals, some light housekeeping,
