Due to COVID-19 and the impact this may have in our community, we ask that all documents be dropped in the secure drop box located outside the main entrance door. Please include the Customer name and date of birth on the documents. All original documents will be mailed back to the Customer. Thank you for helping keep our customers healthy and safe

Montezuma County Department of Social Services will collaborate and advocate to help children, families, and individuals work towards stability through the utilization of programs and resources.
