Here for you...

The Farmington Social Services Department provides support to residents experiencing financial, physical and psycho-social hardships.  A social worker is available to assess needs, advise on available options, support and serve as an advocate.  While many services are available through our Town’s Social Services, additional assistance is provided through a system of networking, advocacy and referral.
