Community Services


The Office of Community Services is a referral agency providing resource information to residents who live, work, and play in our community. Through an array of grant-funded programs, we can offer quality, best practice services to youth and their families at various levels. 

Our mission: “We are dedicated to being responsive to the needs of our youth, elders and families by providing the highest quality of service and ensuring customer satisfaction with every interaction.”

 Our referral process connects residents with a variety of community-based services including:

  • Housing Assistance
  • Entitlement Access (DCF, Safelink)- By appointment only
  • Rent Assistance (as funds allow) – By appointment only
  • Utility Assistance (as funds allow) – By appointment only
  • Food (including delivered groceries, as funds allow)
  • Free Basic Tax Preparation

New processes for the Office Community Services: 

The only accessible entrance will be through the front of the building, by 17th street, for ALL walk-ins.

Please keep in mind that we are practicing social distancing and we will only allow THREE individuals in the lobby at a time. All individuals waiting outside must maintain a safe distance.

Thank you for your cooperation.
