Information on Services

Prevention, Retention & Contingency (PRC)

This program is designed to help families with urgent needs. By helping families address short-term needs, services will be provided with the expectation that families will overcome the immediate barriers to achieving and maintaining self-sufficiency and personal responsibility.

Prevent families from having to apply for cash assistance to solve short-term problems

Help employed parents retain their job

Provide for contingent needs by helping families take care of isolated emergencies before they turn into crisis

PRC is available to families that include a minor child, a pregnant woman in the last 3 months of her pregnancy if she has no other minor children. Some services are available to the parent of a minor child who does not live in the same household.

Ohio Works First (OWF) offers time-limited cash assistance and employment services to eligible families working towards self-sufficiency. Families must contain at least one child under the age of 18 or an individual who has not attained age 19 and is a full time student in secondary or vocational school. OWF is also available to a pregnant individual in the last 3 months of pregnancy. A self-sufficiency contract (SSC) is required of all adults in order to document the agency and the individual's responsibilities in achieving the goal of self-sufficiency. Part of the process of developing the SSC is a review of work history, education, and interests. The amount of the monthly check will be based on the number of people in the family and any income.
