Social Services

The Social Services Department provides assistance for residents with social, emotional, and economic needs of every kind. Our services help residents achieve self-sufficiency, maintain economic well-being and adjust to difficult circumstances and events in their lives. Like Simsbury itself, our services have grown and changed over the years. Today, our major program areas include services to families, youth, seniors and persons with disabilities.

Each year, the Social Services Department provides service to Simsbury individuals and families through programs which include, but are not limited to: Financial Assistance, Medical Assistance,  Food Programs, Holiday Programs, Emergency Shelter, Eviction Assistance, Energy Assistance, Renter’s Rebate Program, Information, Referrals and Notary services. In addition, we offer many services to our seniors and persons with disabilities through the Senior Center, Senior Outreach Program, and the Dial-A-Ride Program.
