Social Services

A regional welfare office administrates the town's General Assistance program under the auspices of the state Department of Social Services.

Residents without assets or financial resources may contact the office for food bank, clothing source and other relevant referrals.  Individuals with special medical needs, such as substance abuse, will be directed to the proper facilities.  The office offers assistance for unemployable individuals who are awaiting Social Security service.

Seymour residents with disabilities who cannot travel to the New Haven office, can contact the TEAM office in the Valley at (203)736-5420 for assistance.
