Temporary Assistance is designed to provide a temporary and time-limited form of cash and/or non-cash assistance to eligible individuals and/or families who have become unable to support themselves.
Emergency Assistance is available to eligible applicants and is designed to meet an individual's or family's immediate need. In many circumstances, this allows the individual or family to continue to function independently of the public systems.
An emergency requiring temporary shelter should be directed to the Schoharie County Department of Social Services (DSS) during business hours or to the Schoharie County Sheriff's Office after hours.
Shelter/Homeless Emergencies: 518-295-8334 (during business hours) or 518-295-8114 (County Sheriff's Department After-Hours)
