Prevention, Retention, and Contingency (PRC) Program

All PRC services are contingent upon availability of funding.

  • Pregnant women in their third trimester without other minor children may also be eligible
  • Some PRC services are also available to non-custodial parents of a minor child who live in Wyandot County but in a separate household from the child.

Available Assistance
