While recognizing major changes in demographic characteristics of the American family over the past several decades, the Virginia Department of Social Services (VDSS) is initiating an ongoing, system-wide approach to strengthening Virginia’s families.  This initiative focuses on reducing non-marital births, connecting and reconnecting fathers with their children, and encouraging the formation and maintenance of safe, stable, intact, two-parent families.  Through the alignment of resources, policies, and processes and the implementation of specific strategies, VDSS will help strengthen families at every point of client contact.  However, in order to be successful and truly achieve system-wide change, we will need the participation and support of leaders like you.


After learning more about this exciting initiative, we hope you will join us as we work to improve the lives of Virginia’s citizens by creating strong families and in turn, strong communities. We look forward to your participation and thank you for your service to others.
