We help families and children with Social Services
The Jackson County Department of Job and Family Services helps connect families and individuals with a variety of services, including community resources, Prevention, Retention and Contingency Services, and non-emergency transportation.
Prevention, Retention, and Contingency (PRC) Services
The Prevention, Retention, and Contingency (PRC) program is designed to help families overcome immediate barriers to achieving self-sufficiency. These supports help families meet needs required to retain employment or accept a job offer. Additionally, PRC program services assist with contingency services for emergency needs that, if not resolved, could threaten the health, safety, or well-being of one or more household members. PRC services are also aimed at preventing families from needing Ohio Works First Cash Assistance.
PRC plans vary throughout Ohio’s eighty-eight counties; however, each plan covers basic services and benefits that will serve families and/or minor children. Some services that may be available to an assistance group with an income at or below 200% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines (FPG) are: assistance with rent, mortgage, utilities, training/education expenses, uniforms, or vehicle repair. Please contact one of our team members for more information, 740.688.4201 or 740.286.4181.
Non-Emergency Transportation (NET) is a statewide program administered by County Departments of Job and Family Services for Medicaid eligible customers. NET provides transportation services to and from Medicaid providers within the medical community, which is included in the Community Transportation Plan. Under special circumstances, travel outside of the medical community may be available with approval and referral from a local treatment provider.
