    Stronger Together

    On March 22, 2020, the Ohio Department of Health issued an order for Ohioans to stay at home until April 6, 2020. HCDC's top priority is to take care of our clients and our team through these uncertain times.  
    To comply with this order, and more importantly for the safety and health of our team, HCDC is closing our physical office location. This will be effective at 5:00 pm on Monday, March 22, 2020, and we will move to a fully remote operation until the order is rescinded (currently April 6).  
    We have the technology in place to enable our team to work seamlessly from remote locations. We will continue to be fully accessible to you and focused on supporting your needs. Phone and email will continue to operate without interruption. You will notice very little if any change in your experience with us. 
    As we face these challenging times together as a community, there are ways to help. Hamilton County is in critical need of supply donations at this time. Also with the new Stay
    at Home Order, essential employees can apply for credentials to help them move around during this order. Learn more below.
