COVID-19 Update: Human Services (social assistance, housing and children’s services)

Human Services remains open by appointment only, or by telephone or email  

Oxford County Human Services (social assistance, housing and children’s services)remains open at this time, although offices have transitioned to an appointment only basis. The Ingersoll office has temporarily closed because it operates out of the closed local secondary school.

Human Services has made personal contact with most of its 2,500 clients where possible and notified social housing tenants that maintenance repairs will be limited to essential ones that impact safety.

The office remains available by phone or email to Oxford County residents who suddenly find themselves in need of financial assistance, food security or housing stability.
