Adoption Information

Permanency and stability are essential to a child. We work to bring together children (primarily those with special needs) who are available to be adopted and people who want to build families through adoption.

Because adoption is a lifelong process, we also provide services to help adoptive families remain strong through the years. Counseling and support is also offered to birth parents.

Many of the qualifications are the same for foster and foster-to-adopt parents.

Coronavirus, COVID-19


In response to COVID-19, the coronavirus, and to protect the families and children we serve, as well as our employees, the Meigs County Department of Job and Family Services (MCDJFS) has modified the way customers access programs.

MCDJFS remains open Monday through Friday, 8:00am until 4:00pm.  All services remain available.  Certain precautions have been enacted.  Face to face contact with staff will be severely limited.  We ask that you do not come to the office if it can be avoided.

If you have questions about your OWF, SNAP or Medicaid benefits, please call 1-844-640-6446 or visit benefits.ohio.gov
