No, Social Services will not sell your home as long as you or your spouse live in it.

See: http://www.lawny.org/index.php/benefits-self-help-135/welfare-self-help-46/117-public-assistance-and-liens

These liens simply sit on the property title and are paid when the property is sold or refinanced. (If the property is transferred to a third party, social services would then have a right to foreclose).
