A state's Office of Public Assistance, or equivalent, typically provides welfare services, and residents can find its phone number by visiting the website of the state's Department of Human Services or similar department. The website may also list the addresses of all Office of Public Assistance locations.
For example, Montana residents can find the phone number for their local Office of Public Assistance on the Department of Heath and Human Services website. Alaska residents can find the telephone number for the closest office on the Alaska Department of Health and Social Services website, which also shows the offices' physical addresses and fax numbers. Similarly, Colorado residents can find the telephone number of their local welfare office on the state's Department of Human Services website, which also includes the physical location, fax number and director's name.
