Our mission is to enhance the quality of life for the residents of Jefferson County, by supporting the delivery of health and human services.


Children and adults are sometimes in danger of harm, unable to protect themselves, or have no one to assist them.

To protect and assist these citizens, the Children Services Division is responsible for responding to reports of child abuse/neglect/dependency and has a fully qualified staff which investigates reports, provides supportive services to children and their families, and oversees foster care, a children’s home and adoption services.

Adult protective services reduces or remedies conditions endangering adults, providing supportive services and referrals, job assistance, medical services and referrals to community resources.

The Business Department facilitates services which enable the Income Maintenance, Social Service, and Child Support Divisions to function successfully.

Jefferson County Department of Job and Family Services provides matching fund grants to organizations county-wide to assist with job training and other essential services.
