Nearly 15 Years Later: Another Consolidation

Fifteen years ago this month, we were laying the groundwork for a major move from 628 Sycamore St. and other scattered locations to 222 E. Central Parkway.

It was, by far, the largest move in the history of the Hamilton County Department of Job and Family Services (then called the Department of Human Services).

Now, we find ourselves in the midst of another big move.

We are relocating all staff from 237 William H. Taft Road a second major location that opened in 1998 to 222 E. Central Parkway. We are moving them downtown because it is no longer economically feasible to maintain an office that is used by too few of our clients. The economic recession has greatly reduced tax revenues, the source of our operating funds, and we are making tough decisions to live within our means and remain a vital force in this community.

We are continually adjusting and adapting to live within our resources and provide services to the public in the best way possible. We are an agency with more than 60 years of serving the community a resilient one that takes every step possible to carry out our important mission. We look forward to serving your needs well into the future.
