Frequently Asked Questions
Information on Services
Huron County Department of Job and Family Services mission is providing services and support to strengthen our community. Huron County Department of Job & Family Services strives to provide programs to strengthen families, protect children, and the elderly. An important component in supporting independent families is to promote self-sufficiency as a way of life. Support services such as assistance with buying food, limited financial aid, getting adequate health care coverage, and child care are all supportive measures to help families in their pursuit of success.
Children Services: All children need and deserve to grow up in a safe, stable family. For some children who are abused and neglected, this may mean living with a foster or adoptive family is the best alternative to their biological family. Huron County Children Services, in collaboration with our community, builds upon the strengths of families by providing or linking them to prevention and intervention services and resources.
Child Support: Parents have a responsibility to support their children financially. Obtaining child support is important to your child(ren)'s well-being. A child support order sets the amount and type of support parents are required to provide for their child(ren). If a person does not already receive support, the child's parent, guardian, legal custodian, or the person with whom the child lives (considered the residential parent), can contact the local Child Support Enforcement Agency (CSEA) for assistance in establishing an order for the payment of child support and health care needs of the child(ren).
