Fredericksburg’s Department of Social Services has been recognized as one of the best in the state, according to a press release I recieved today from the city.  (You can read the whole thing for yourself here.)

Virginia’s 121 social services offices are divided into three levels, based on the number of employees in each. Fredericksburg is a level 2 office because it has between 36 and 82 workers. The state named Fredericksburg’s office the top agency out of the 60 in its class.

The department was recognized at the April meeting of the State Board of Social Services.
