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
- Personal Safety
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.
To contact us, please call 203-622-3800 or come to our offices in Town Hall between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. After hours appointments are available on request. For those who wish to, complete the Intake form (PDF) and bring it to the office.
