The Delaware County Department of Job & Family Services, with more than 70 team members, provides assistance to families and individuals.

Our customers face many challenges related to monthly living expenses, healthcare, raising a family, enhancing job skills, and seeking and retaining employment.

The department relies on financial resources from federal, state and local government to serve people in need in our community.

We are also grateful to the many partners who help us serve children, adults, the elderly, job seekers, and employers. Together, we help improve the quality of life for everyone in Delaware County.

Reentry Resource Guide

To assist newly released inmates and their families, a helpful and handy Reentry Pocket Guide has been created by the members of the Delaware County Reentry Coalition. We don’t want to see former inmates return to jail, we want to see them thriving and succeeding in our communities. This Pocket Guide is a great tool to do just that. Click Here to access the online Pocket Guide.
