Sponsor a Family is a food, toy, and gift distribution program for low income Geauga County families. Applications have been mailed to households with minor children who are receiving food stamp assistance through Geauga County Job and Family Services. If you did not receive an application and would like to inquire about receiving help, please contact Sara Shininger, Community Support Coordinator, at 440-285-126
In May, a survey was sent to JFS staff, educators, and other social service agencies in Geauga County to identify where gaps in services still exist. With the information provided, it was our hope we could work together to fill some of the unmet needs identified.
Ohio’s New State Hearings Web Portal
In Ohio, if you believe you have been mistakenly denied benefits or services for many Ohio Department of Job and Family Services (ODJFS) programs—or if you disagree with a decision about your case—you can ask for a hearing from the ODJFS Bureau of State Hearings.
Thanks to a new web portal called State Hearings Access to Records Electronically (SHARE), it’s now easier than ever to request a state hearing or access your state hearing information.
