SSA Programming

Service and Support Administration (SSA) is a process of assisting eligible individuals and their families to identify and acquire services and supports, including natural supports, from available resources.


Who is Eligible for Service and Support Administration?

SSA services are available to Ross County residents who have evidence of developmental delays (age 3 and up) or documented life-long disabilities and at least three areas of substantial functional limitations on the Ohio Eligibility Determination Instrument (for students and adults). Services are provided only by consent of the individual, legal guardian, or parent of a minor.


How do I Request Service and Support?

Call the Pioneer Center Service and Support Administration Intake Department at 740-775-7044 during normal business hours, 8:00 am to 4:30 pm, Monday through Friday. You may also ask a friend, family member, or other service providers to make a referral for you. Once determined eligible, a Service and Support Administrator will be selected to assist you in applying for desired services.
