Social Services Will Close at 12 Due to Air Conditioner Issue

FAYETTEVILLE, N.C.– The Cumberland County Department of Social Services main building at 1225 Ramsey Street, Fayetteville will close at noon today due to an issue with one of the building’s chillers, which is causing climate control issues.

The closing will affect in-person services at the main DSS building on Ramsey Street, however Social Services staff members working remotely, in the community, in court, or other DSS facilities or receiving non-emergency medical transportation will continue to do so.
