General Relief

The county funded General Relief program offers short-term assistance to adults without children who need assistance with meeting their most basic shelter and personal needs.  Adults applying for General Relief fall under two categories, employable or unemployable.

Employable participants are required to repay county funds by participating in Work Project. Other employment services include referrals to Job Club and Job Search where they receive four weeks of assistance in seeking and securing a job.

Unemployable participants must provide proof of disability. Many people in this group are awaiting federal government approval of their total disability claims.  Participants must sign an agreement to repay county funds issued, by deductions from future disability benefits.  Our Social Worker/SSI Advocates provide assistance with the SSI/SSP application process.

Tips For Prompt And Professional Assistance
1. Make an appointment - Always attempt to make an appointment. Oftentimes this will save you hours waiting in lines. When on the phone make sure you ask for the documentation needed in order to receive assistance.

2. Do not be late for your appointment - This tip should speak for itself.

3. Dress appropriately - If you want to be treated with respect, dress as appropriately as possible. We are not saying wear a suit. Just make sure you and your clothes are clean and non offensive. We have found that clients who dress in this manner have a better chance of receiving aid.

4. Bring all pre determined documentation - Bring all of the documents you were advised to bring from your appointment phone call. Without them, you will not receive aid.
