Human Services


The mission of the Greenwich Department of Human Services is to support our residents by providing direct services, collaborating with community partners, and focusing on life-enhancing initiatives.


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.
