Mission Statement

The primary mission of the Franklin Township Trustee's Office is to provide emergency and short-term assistance to the less fortunate and needy, to treat everyone with respect and dignity, and to help residents of Franklin Township become self-sufficient. 

What We Provide

The Franklin Township Trustee's Office provides a service unlike any other unit of government called Township Assistance. Township Assistance is a program that allows residents in Franklin Township, who are suffering financial hardship, the opportunity to apply for relief of their need(s) for shelter, utilities, transportation, burials, clothing, and payee representative. Many refer to this type of service as Temporary Assistance because it is provided as a temporary or short-term remedy. Those individuals and families who apply for this assistance must prove that they are unable to provide for basic needs through personal effort and that they have exhausted all other means.


In Franklin Township we facilitate partnerships with local churches and charitable organizations to assist our efforts in providing services to those in need. Franklin Township strives to provide assistance  in  the most economical means possible.
