Richland County Job & Family Services helps you, the individuals and families of Richland County, to navigate the state and federal resources available to you for getting on the path to self-sufficiency.
Think of us as your hub for connecting with other agencies when things in your life get beyond your ability to manage them. If you need help getting medical care, mental health or drug and alcohol treatment, transportation to work or appointments, or food and clothes for your family, contact us first.
We’ve been here since 1947 and employ nearly 100 people who are here to serve the residents of Richland County. Our trained staff will listen to your concerns and work with you to find the best solutions available.
It’s not just about being in tough times. As a part of the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services (ODJFS), we exist to fulfill a broad, state-wide vision:
The Ohio Department of Job and Family Services, through state and local partnerships, will be the nation's premier family support and workforce development system contributing to skilled, healthy Ohioans, successful businesses, and strong communities.
Richland County Job & Family Services invests in you by helping you obtain the basic education or job training you need to make a move in your life. We can also help you with job searches or in applying for federal micro-enterprise grants.
By the way, you may also see us referred to as “CDJFS.” This stands for “Community Department of Job and Family Services,” and represents our role as a local administrator of ODJFS.
