Community Services

For the health and safety of staff and those we serve, appointments with Community Services staff will continue to be over telephone or video conference whenever possible. Although the department lobbies in Cottage Grove, Forest Lake, and Stillwater are open, there is limited capacity. When required, in-person meetings are by appointment only; to schedule an appointment, call your worker or call 651-430-6455.

Effective Friday, January 14th, 2022 our Woodbury lobby and Career Lab will be closed to the public through the end of this month. Stillwater, Cottage Grove and Forest Lake will remain open; however, lobbies are closed from noon to 1 p.m. daily.
