The Lincoln County Department of Social Services, a governmental agency authorized by Wisconsin State Statutes, is under the direction of the Lincoln County Board of Supervisors and the State Department of Health and Social Services. The department evaluates eligibility, along with administering a variety of social service and financial support programs, to persons within Lincoln County and makes appropriate referrals to other service providers. These services are provided to meet the basic economic needs of dependent persons, alleviate dependency, enhance family functioning, assess/provide services to children and adults in need of protection, and to coordinate supportive care for elderly and disabled persons. Recognizing the rights of each individual, our goal is to serve all persons with dignity, respect and confidentiality, and to work toward the constant improvement in the quality of services.

(Not all prohibited bases will apply to all programs and/or employment activities).
