What We do
The Health and Human Services Commission is the combination of the Commission for the Aging, Youth Commission and the Board of Human Services. The Commission develops and coordinates information concerning all age groups, analyzes the services and programs provided by federal and state agencies and assists in applying them to New Canaan residents. They generate community focus to evaluate and create quality programs that best meet the changing needs of the population and establish policies and procedures which assist the residents in need of critical necessities such as food, shelter, safety, and health services. (including mental and physical health). The Commission also makes recommendations to the Selectman regarding the development of new programs for unmet needs. All these help develop a proactive and supportive community, which encourages responsibility and fosters a safe, healthy, well balanced life.
