To Report Child Abuse or Elder Abuse

The staff of Medina County Job and Family Services (MCJFS) is striving to continuously improve our services to the community. We are moving forward to successfully adapt to changes in the economy, changes in demographics, and changes in funding. Over the past couple of years, funding has been cut in half while caseloads have doubled. Recently, because of MCJFS staff reductions, 37 Child Support workers co-located to the building, joining the offices of Family First, and Help Me Grow.
With the goal of maintaining positive momentum, the County Commissioners recently allocated funding for Adult Protective Services for the very first time.
This has allowed MCJFS to add capacity to this program which serves all County residents sixty-years old and above. By collaborating with Family First and the Office of Older adults, a coordinated safety net exists to help seniors maintain a high quality of life in their own homes for as long as they can securely do so.
MCJFS is committed to maintaining the dynamic metabolism of change. This may include the roll out of national health care, off-site applications, better methods of fraud prevention, and finding foster families for teens who have suffered multiples losses. Whatever the case maybe, staff will do whatever it takes to get the job done.
