Resources and Referrals
The Department of Child Support Services (DCSS) has teamed with the One Stop Career Link System to work with non-custodial parents. Jobs Support, operated by DCSS, is a program designed to increase the likelihood of a parent obtaining employment and meeting his/her child support obligation.
Under this program, participants are provided with the resources necessary to obtain employment, including access to career centers, a work readiness evaluation, employment training programs, and up-to-date job listings.
Services for Older Americans—Benefits Check-Up
The Access Points offers the Benefits Check-Up services for older Americans. Many older Americans need help paying for prescription drugs, health care, utilities and other basic needs. Ironically, millions of older Americans — especially those with limited incomes — are eligible for, but not receiving, these benefits from existing federal, state and local programs. Ranging from heating and energy assistance to prescription savings programs and income supplements, there are many public programs available to seniors in need.
Benefits Check-up is the nation's most comprehensive Web-based service to screen for benefits programs for seniors with limited income and resources and provide information on how to apply for them.
Benefits Check-Up includes more than 2,000 public and private benefits programs from all 50 states and the District of Columbia, such as:
• Prescription drugs
• Nutrition (including Supplemental Nutrition Assistance (SNAP)/Food Stamps)
• Energy assistance
• Health care
• Social Security
• In-home services
• Tax relief
• Educational assistance
• Volunteer services
A qualified Benefits Check-up representative is available throughout the Access Points.
