Important Notice: The statewide eligibility systems at the Job and Family Service agencies will be unavailable on August 23rd, 24th and 27th for system updates. Our agency in Wood County will be open, but we will be very limited in our ability to research information and will be unable to issue any public assistance benefits. We will still accept applications and will process them as soon as possible, but there could be a delay during this time. Please plan accordingly when making plans to call for interviews, or to request services and information from our agency. Thank you.
