A Welcome Message from the Commissioner of Social Services Christine G. Peters  

The Department of Social Services is a complex agency, one which administers many programs with many clients.

In financial services, our goal is to help the needy receive benefits and to help them not need them. We have a whole array of services, which can help individuals attain self-sufficiency.

In Social Services, we focus on families' strengths and build on them in order to preserve those families and make them stronger.

These holistic approaches are ones which we always try to maintain with the view that all we do at the Clinton County Department of Social Services contributes to making Clinton County stronger and a better place to live.

I hope you enjoy your trip through our site, which exposes you to the programs provided by the dedicated staff at our Department.
