Help for the Unemployed

I pointed out a few posts ago that our agency does not handle unemployment compensation. It is handled at the state level, by the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services. Still, many of the people who find themselves unemployed turn to our agency for help with food, medical insurance or other necessities. We serve the same population.

The state recently unveiled a website aimed at helping the unemployed access a range of state services. The OhioHereToHelp site can help the unemployed search for a job, find education and training opportunities and get information about resources and other aid available to them.
