Indianapolis - Indiana's Family and Social Services Administration (FSSA) along with Putnam County Hospital are partnering together to bring DFRv - a fully functional Division of Family Resources office on wheels - to the Greencastle community.
DFRv travels across the state visiting different communities to help needy families become aware of the extra assistance for which they qualify.
The mobile office is equipped with all the amenities that are needed to serve clients while out on the road.
This mobile operation will be available to help Hoosiers file applications for Division of Family Resources programs at Teacher's Credit Union, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Friday. DFRv offers assistance in filing applications for healthcare and cash assistance programs.
While on site, citizens will be able to apply, report changes, or ask questions about these available programs: HIP (Healthy Indiana Plan), Medicaid, Job Training, Food Stamps and Hoosier Healthwise.
"Anyone eligible for any of these programs can sign up. This is a real plus. The more people enrolled in these programs, the better it is for the county," said Dennis Weatherford, Putnam County Hospital Administrator.
Teacher's Credit Union is located at 33 Putnam Plaza in Greencastle. To learn more about DFR and the program requirements call 1-800-403-0864 or visit online at http://www.in.gov/fssa/2407.htm.
