Please know the health and safety of our community is our top priority. Currently, we are recommending that masks be worn when you are visiting Seneca County DJFS. If you do not have a mask when arriving one can be provided to you. We also would like to encourage you to call and make appointments if you need to visit in person with a caseworker or someone from within the Agency. This will better help us serve you while keeping those involved as safe as possible during the recent trends within the Pandemic. The Drop Box is continued to be serviced as well.

We will continue to accept applications through our online portals, as well as documents submitted to the department email boxes below.  Please feel free to email attachments and/or photographs of documents, verifications, etc.
