We realize this an extremely difficult time for everyone and want to assure you that the Greenwich Department of Human Services is here to assist in any possible way.  Town services are operating in a limited capacity. Town Hall is currently open to visitors by appointments only. Case managers are available to assist you and if needed can schedule an appointment to speak with you.  Please feel free to call us at 203-622-3800 and leave your name and telephone number as well as the reason for your call.  We will get back to you within 24 hours during our normal business hours of 8:30am-4:30pm Monday- Friday. 

If you prefer you may also send a confidential email to Linda Sandiaes, Director of Human Service’s programs, or Scott Harvey, Director of Case Management.

As always if you have an emergency, please call 911.

The mission of the Department of Human Services is to enhance the quality of life of Greenwich residents through support in meeting basic human needs and promoting services that foster self-sufficiency.


As the images reflect, we serve as your bridge. In addition to providing direct services, we connect you to the essential resources of the community. These resources provide the support you may need, such as:

  • Access to Health Care Services
  • Educational and Employment Opportunities
  • Food
  • Personal Safety
  • Shelter

The available services are diverse and support all ages. Our services are provided by a dedicated professional staff and a network of community partners. We also have staff that are bi-lingual.
