From the City of Lynchburg: In order to better serve its clients, the Lynchburg Human Services Department, 99 Ninth Street, will hold extended hours each Tuesday beginning January 5, 2016. The department will be open on Tuesdays, 8:30 a.m. until 7:00 p.m. Regular hours of 8:30 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. will be conducted the other days of the week (Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday). According to Human Services Director Tamara Rosser, the department is hoping the extension of hours will help accommodate citizens who may not be able to access department services during regular weekday hours. “Some of our clients are working during the same hours we are open, and they find it difficult to access services. We are hoping this change on Tuesdays will make it easier for them,” Rosser said. For more information, contact the Department of Human Services at (434) 455-5850.
