Delaware state social workers providing assistance at libraries

Delaware state social workers have begun providing assistance at libraries in all three counties under a pilot program launched by the Delaware Division of Libraries and the Department of Health and Social Services.

Two social workers from the Division of Social Services’ Community Partner Support Unit are now available once per week for three hours at seven libraries across the state.

Social workers can guide patrons through the state’s online benefits application process, assist individuals in applying for food benefits, help applicants gather necessary documents, connect eligible families and individuals with employment and training resources, and connect with other DHSS agencies to answer questions as needed. This onsite assistance is in addition to the help available at the 15 State Service Centers located statewide.

The schedule for social workers in Delaware libraries is as follows:

• North Wilmington Public Library, 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Fridays
• Wilmington Public Library – Rodney Square, 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Wednesdays
• Route 9 Library, New Castle, 1 to 4:30 p.m. Tuesdays
• Dover Public Library, 9 a.m. to noon Wednesdays
• Seaford Public Library, 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. Mondays
• Selbyville Public Library, 10 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. Thursdays
• Frankford Public Library, 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. Thursdays
