Live chats with program experts

Thank you very much for taking time out of your busy day to read this blog. The first post drew more than a thousand views and some comments offering support for this method of communication.

As I mentioned in the first post, I want to use this blog as a means to help more people during the economic downturn. With that in mind, I invite you to participate in a live online chat about job services. It takes place 10-11 a.m., Wednesday, Feb. 18, on http://www.hcjfs.org. You can ask questions about what is available for job seekers, as well as employers looking to fill job openings.

Last May, we started offering live online chats on the agency’s Web site (www.hcjfs.org) as a way for people to ask questions, share ideas and express concerns.

Since then we have conducted almost two dozen chats on topics such as child support, Medicaid/food stamps/cash assistance, employment services, child care, child abuse and foster care and adoption.

The chats have given us the opportunity to communicate in real time with dozens of customers and people who serve them, such as case managers at social service agencies.

We have found that many people view the chats to learn more, or come back to read the transcript under Today at HCJFS on the Web site.

These chats give us the chance to directly connect our program experts with you. We encourage you to participate!

  2. im a grandmother with custody of my two grandchildren, i heard that there was a program called the kinship program is this still avaliable?

  3. Emily, it could, and often does, take up to 30 days for processing. We try to process as quickly as possible, but, with record numbers coming in our doors, it often takes longer than we’d like.

    You did not provide enough information in this post for someone to check the status of your case. Please call our 946-1000 line or visit http://www.hcjfs.org and join our live private chats between 10 a.m and 2 p.m. weekdays to ask the status of your case. Thanks!

  4. I put in an app last MOnday and I am wanting to check on the status.
