Summer Youth Program

The summer youth program places needy youths ages 16-24 in a job during the summer months. This allows youths to work in our community to earn a little extra money while gaining valuable work experience. The Summer Youth program benefits both the students and the community. See more HERE.

School Clothes Program

In the past few years, the Washington County DJFS has funded a special project to purchase school clothes/shoes for eligible school age children. There is no certainty of available funding from year to year. In order to be prepared in the event funding does become available, applications are mailed each year to children who were on Medicaid as of January 31st in Washington County. To be eligible the child must be:
