Overview:

The Department of Social Services assists New Milford residents with their social, emotional and economic needs. Services extend to helping people meet the basic human needs of food, shelter, clothing, and maintenance of health and well-being.

Income eligibility is determined by a professional social worker. Most programs require an interview with a staff person.

Proof of household income and residence in New Milford will be required. Please call for an appointment and a list of required documents. This department assists residents under age 60.

   Happening at Social Services:
