Join the Discussion About Child Abuse and Neglect

Child abuse and neglect is not a subject many people like to think about.

Often, discussion about potential abuse causes us to confront uncomfortable emotions.

Most people would rather assume child abuse doesn't touch their lives or the lives of their neighbors, family or friends.

But here at Hamilton County Job and Family Services we think and talk about child abuse and neglect every day.


Wear Blue April 10

Don't forget! April 10 is Wear Blue: Child Abuse is Preventable Day.

Help us raise awareness about child abuse and neglect by wearing blue to work, school, the gym or wherever you find yourself April 10.

Please also post your picture in blue on our Facebook wall at www.facebook.com/hcjfs. Learn more about Wear Blue Day in the March edition of Update.

Annual Veterans Hiring Event Now Open to the Public

The annual Cincinnati veterans hiring event, hosted by Ohio Department of Job and Family Services’ (ODJFS) Veterans Program, will be held for the first time at the SuperJobs Center. It will take place on Thursday, April 4 and is open to veterans from 9:30 a.m. to noon and the public from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.

There will be 28 employers at the event, all of which have current openings. A wide variety of positions will be available, from warehouse to high-tech jobs.


Five Questions with the Salzarulo Family

Each year, hundreds of children come into foster care through Hamilton County Job and Family Services. Many return to their parents. But for some children, adoption becomes the best option for a forever family. Currently, Hamilton County has about 190 children looking for adoptive parents.

The Salzarulo’s decided to adopt their third child, Elijah, from foster care. On December 27, 2012, this family from Sharonville became Elijah’s forever family. Update caught up with the Salzarulo’s to ask about their experience with foster care and adoption.


HEMI Seeks Mentors

The Higher Education Mentoring Initiative is again looking for long-term mentors. Help us spread the word by encouraging your friends and family members to seriously consider becoming a HEMI mentor.

HEMI fills an important gap in the foster care community; HEMI provides mentors who encourage, guide and befriend foster children to obtain their higher education goals.


Social Security Information Now Online

The Social Security Administration recently released a new online portal to allow individuals to access their Social Security or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) information online.

Specifically, the benefit verification letter , payment history, and earnings record will be instantly available through an online account for individuals currently receiving benefits or Medicare. Social Security beneficiaries also can change their address and start or change direct deposit information online.

Individuals who do not currently receive benefits can access a Social Security Statement to review estimates of their retirement, disability and survivor benefits, an earnings record or estimated Social Security and Medicare taxes they have paid.
