Our vision is to build programming that guarantees that the most vulnerable in our community are protected, secure and encouraged. The food assistance program is designed to raise nutritional levels and to safeguard the health and well being of our Seniors and Disabled. Medicaid enables our Seniors and Disabled with the ability to seek medical attention and obtain the medications they need to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Medicaid Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS) waivers provide alternatives to institutional long term-care. Nursing Homes provide a safe environment where you would receive medical attention and care you need around the clock. Adult protective services are services that help vulnerable adults age 60 and older who are in danger of harm, are unable to protect themselves, and may have no one to assist them.

Transportation to and from doctor appointments is provided through the NET (Non-Emergency Transportation) program for Medicaid eligible Seniors and Disabled. Community resources connects Seniors and Disabled to a variety of services. Meigs JFS generates basic and supportive programming that connects disabled and elderly residents to essential resources.

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.
