    **Extended Hours Announcement**

    Jefferson County Department of Human Services Programs to Expand Hours of Operation

    The Jefferson County Department of Human Services offers extended hours of operation through the Laramie Building in Golden, providing customers with select services every Tuesday evening until 8:00 pm.

    Many customers served by Jefferson County Department of Human Services work full time jobs and are unable to travel to the Human Services offices during regular hours of operation. One of the key reasons for the change is to help working customers meet the needs of their families.

    Services available during the extended hours will include job seeker workshops; open lab time including resume assistance, career planning, computer skills, and application assistance; Child Care Assistance Program services; eligibility specialist services including food, cash, and medical benefits; American Job Center youth activities; and Connect for Health Colorado navigation. Other services may be available based on customer need, demand, and available resources.
