Human Services

We Are Your Bridge


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.
