COVID 19 Department Procedures

Effective March 23rd, the St. Clair County Courthouse as well as the Annex building we are located in will be closed to the public.  This does not mean services will cease or there will be no staff on site. While our method of delivery may change, we will still be providing services to the best of our ability. Many programs are using technology to continue to provide services; Skype and Facetime are being used, digital signatures where possible, etc.  We are also using this time to prepare for the back end of COVID 19. I believe that once things begin to open up again we will be hit hard especially in LIHEAP, CSBG, and Workforce. Our unique structure of many services under one umbrella should offer us the opportunity to provide comprehensive relief to many as COVID 19 subsides.  We are preparing to be part of the rebuilding process. In the meantime if you or someone you know needs anything and we can help, please do not hesitate to call.
