Human Services

Oxford County takes an integrated approach to helping clients. Our focus is one client, one file, one client service worker.

Finding, understanding and applying for social and community services can be challenge-- especially when someone is already facing challenge times. That’s why the Human Services professional team considers many different factors when helping a client: income, education, health, transportation, employment, safety/legal, and shelter.

By focusing on overall quality of life, the Human Services team can also help clients find out about other community programs and resources that can help meet their needs. Our goal is to provide great service while helping clients enhance their quality of life and contribute to their community.


Have your say on future child & family programs

Local parents, caregivers and parents-to-be have an opportunity to help shape future early years programming in Oxford County.

Oxford County Human Services is conducting an online survey over the next several weeks to get a sense of what parents and caregivers are looking for in programs for children 0-6 years of age.

The survey will assist the development of Ontario Early Years Child and Family Centres (OEYCFC) in Oxford County. The survey can be taken between now and February 14, 2017. The survey should take 15-20 minutes to complete, and the information provided will remain confidential.

Take the online survey now.

Aside from the online survey, participants can also complete a printed survey submit to one of the following locations:

  • Oxford County Administration Building (OCAB) – 21 Reeve Street, Woodstock, ON N4S 7Y3
  • OCCC administration office – 21 Market Street East, Woodstock, ON N4S 1H6
  • PFLC at 110 Winchester, Woodstock, Ontario, N4S7K6

A paper survey can also be completed at any Ontario Early Years Centre, Mother Goose Program or Parent & Family Literacy Centre locations in Oxford County.

Those who fill out the survey will be entered into a random draw for a chance to win one of six $50 Wal-Mart gift cards.
