Supplemental Nutrition Assistance (SNAP)
Eligible families receive a debit card to purchase food at participating stores. Household income cannot exceed 130% of the Federal Poverty Level. Able-bodied adults may be asked to complete a work requirement.
Medical Assistance (Medicaid)
You may be eligible for medical assistance if any of the following apply: you are low income, elderly, disabled, pregnant, or a child. Low income for Medicaid means at or below 138% of the Federal Poverty Level.
Pregnant women and low income families with children may qualify for temporary assistance through Ohio Works First (OWF). Recipients can receive monthly payments for up to 36 months while pursuing self-sufficiency.
Child Care Assistance
JFS recognizes the importance of having quality childcare if you are working or in school. You can apply for assistance if you earn less than 130% of the federal poverty limit when you first apply. Call (937) 496-7759 for more information. On the Move specialists are only able to answer general questions about this program.
Adult Protective Services (APS)
APS works to ensure the safety and well-being of citizens 60 and older. APS helps people remain in their homes by resolving dangerous conditions. Call (937) 225-4906 anytime to report suspected abuse or neglect.
You can establish paternity even if you don’t want a support order. When a child is born outside of marriage, fathers do not automatically have rights until paternity is established. Legal paternity can be established up to age 23. Paternity has many benefits, including access to: Social Security benefits, pensions, inheritance, veteran’s benefits, insurance and disability benefits, lottery winnings, citizenship, medical history and financial support.
Anyone with legal custody can establish a support order, even if the other parent doesn’t live in Ohio. Many orders are established administratively, which is faster and more informal than court. Every support order also addresses your child’s health insurance needs.
If you get behind in child support because of hardship or medical condition, contact the CSEA to discuss payment options. Our Early Intervention specialists can help you consider options such as arrears forgiveness, waivers, compromises, modifications, and family support programs to help you get back on track.
Support orders can be reviewed every 36 months, or sooner if certain conditions are met. If you have experienced a change of circumstances, contact CSEA right away to apply for a review and adjustment of your order.
