Social Services

About Us

A wide array of Community Social work services are offered to Ridgefield residents through the Department. Services are provided to families and adults by the Director, who is also the Agent for the Disabled and the Town's federally mandated Americans With Disabilities Act Coordinator. Services specifically for senior citizens are provided by the Municipal Agent for the Elderly.

Department members are always available to provide information and referral services to Ridgefield residents as well as to assist them in applying for local, State and Federal benefit programs for which they may qualify.

If you would like to contribute to help local residents with financial insecurity, please go to our fund page. Thank you for your generosity and kindess!
