Welcome to GastonHHS.org!
On July 1, 2013, the Gaston County Department of Social Services and the Gaston County Health Department were consolidated into a single agency, the Gaston County Department of Health & Human Services.
For now, the public may not notice much of a difference, because staff at all locations are continuing to conduct their programs while conducting strategic planning. GastonHHS.org will be the new Web address for both sites, so please update your bookmarks.
We're looking forward to serving you better!
