THE SOCIAL SERVICE MINISTRY provides a compassionate and realistic response to families and individuals in crisis. Persons applying need to be below 200% of the federal poverty guideline (approx. $48,500 for a family of four).
PERSONS APPLYING ARE ASKED TO BRING photo ID, Social Security numbers for each family member, proof of household income and proof of address. Applicants for assistance must be residents of Ashland County.
Each head of household must complete and sign an intake form.
During the one-on-one interview with the emergency assistance case manager, solutions to the underlying cause of the crisis are addressed through referrals and advocacy. It is our goal to achieve long-term solutions to problems in order to enhance family stability.
Available at no charge for those in need. All are welcome. Donations are accepted.

The Food Pantry is located in the Annex across from the main building.
Please bring identification (driver’s license or birth certificate) for all household members and a piece of current mail proving residency (no junk mail). You can receive assistance up to twice a month. If your need is greater than twice a month, please come to the Social Services Office in the main building, and your situation will be reviewed.
We are always in need of the following items: canned meat, tuna, peanut butter, mac n cheese & desserts for the pantry to help us provide over 400 food orders a month to the local community.
THANK YOU for your support!
