When you arrive for the first time at Social Services you will be given an interview, either that day or at another prearranged time, with one of our Screening Examiners. You and the Screener will discuss your current situation, which program you may qualify for and what requirements you will need to meet in order to be eligible. If you choose Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), SNAP, Medicaid and/or Daycare, you will be given an application to complete. If you qualify for TANF and are able to work, you may be required to do a job search or meet with a representative of the Department of Labor. This is part of the "Work First" program to help our clients toward complete self-sufficiency. If you are employed you may be eligible for our Support Services programs. The screener may also refer you to other resources in the community, depending on your specific need. The screening area also does same day eligibility interviews for clients with "onetime" emergency / immediate needs.
