Community Partnership Program

The Greenwich Department of Human Services sponsors the Community Partnership Program that grants funds to partner agencies whose services/ programs strengthen the community’s capacity in providing basic human services. The primary objectives of the Community Partnership Program are to:

  • Provide support services that are an integral part of the GDHS mission, vision and strategic plan for human services
  • Serve as a catalyst to community-based agencies, both large and small, to provide services and leverage resources
  • Strengthen the community’s capacity to provide human services to individuals and families in need through the effective and efficient use of resources
  • Help build public/private partnerships and improve coordination and collaboration across the community agency network
The Community Partnership Program has 4 service areas

Priority Service Areas

  • Education: Positive Child/Youth Emotional Growth and Development
  • Housing: Access to Available Emergency/Crisis Shelter
  • Medical/Behavioral Health: Access to Timely and Quality Health Services
  • Personal Safety: Protection Against Abuse, Neglect and Domestic Violence

The ultimate goal of the Community Partnership Program is to encourage local human service providers to collaborate in establishing a cost-effective network of quality services to Town residents.
