The Prevention, Retention, Contingency (PRC) program is a special category of assistance offered by Delaware County Department of Job & Family Services (DCDJFS).  It is designed to help people overcome immediate barriers to achieving or maintaining self-sufficiency and personal responsibility, thereby preventing the need for ongoing public assistance.  PRC is meant to assist a family through a presenting crisis and not to maintain a family when long term financial expenses exceed the ability of the family to meet those obligations.  The main objectives of providing PRC assistance are to prevent loss of paid employment or eliminate a barrier in securing employment; to provide temporary assistance when the retention of a job is in jeopardy due to an unexpected crisis; and to meet a presenting contingency (unforeseen event that, if not satisfied threatens the safety, health or well-being of one or more family members).

PRC services include:

  • Shelter Assistance:
  • Utility Assistance
  • Car Repair
  • Vehicle Fuel
  • Employment Retention
  • Employment and Training (Employment Readiness) Services
  • Kinship Caregiver Program Services
  • Family Preservation and Reunification Services
