Our vision is to improve the quality of our communities workforce leading to the elimination of unemployment in Meigs County.

Job Seekers have access to multiple tools to enhance their job search. The goal of WIOA is to increase participant employment, job retention, earnings, and occupational skill attainment for adults, dislocated workers, and youth. Meigs JFS has a state of the art OhioMeansJobs® Meigs County Resource Room program that offers assistance to individuals searching for jobs as well as to employers seeking to spread the word about employment opportunities. OhioMeansJobs® is a website that connects job seekers with employers. Meigs JFS can assist employers in meeting the changing needs of their business by assisting in the recruitment, training, and retention of skilled workers. PRC (Prevention, Retention, and Contingency) helps people to maintain their self sufficiency by meeting specific needs through special programs. Community Resources offer Meigs County job seekers a variety of resources. Meigs JFS unites all able-bodied individuals to positions that meet their skills and interests while creating a strong local economy.


Veterans and/or Eligible Spouses

OhioMeansJobs® Meigs County would like to thank all the men and women who are serving or have served in our armed forces. One way we can show our thanks is by giving all Veterans priority of service with their re-employment needs.

If you are visiting the OhioMeansJobs Center, please let our staff know upon arrival that you have served in the military, so we may better serve you in your training or employment needs. You may also visit OhioMeansVeteranJobs.com to post a resume, search jobs, find additional information or resources.


Beginning December 18, 2018, the phone menu options have changed.  Please listen carefully to the new choices.  Old extension numbers will not work.

Attention SNAP (Food Stamps) recipients

Due to the partial U.S. government shutdown, February SNAP benefits will be available on your EBT (Ohio Direction) card on January 16, 2019 and are meant to be used in February.  YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE ADDITIONAL BENEFITS IN FEBRUARY.

 This means that you may have two months’ worth of food dollars on your account this month. No food dollars will be added in February.  The early food dollars are meant to help with next month’s food.  We encourage our SNAP-participating customers to plan their purchases carefully so that they have money available to meet their food needs.
