We seek to preserve the dignity of the family/ individual and to provide good customer service in an efficient, cost-effective, timely and professional manner.
Services are provided to the citizens of Randolph County that will assist families and individuals to live in safe environments & to remain self sufficient. The programs administered by this department are funded by a combination of Federal, State, & County funds. Federally mandated programs include Income Maintenance programs such as Medicaid, Food & Nutrition Services, Work First (Temporary Assistance for Needy Families), Work First Employment Services, & Crisis Assistance. Program eligibility is based on citizen income, fund reserves, & household size.

The department is also involved in a variety of other related services and coordinates with many community agencies to provide the most appropriate services to citizens in Randolph County.
