Our Mission


     Our Human Services staff is available to Woodbridge residents to coordinate local services, collaborate with public and non-public agencies, and assess and evaluate community needs.   We are happy to assist you.
     The Human Services Department also encompasses The Woodbridge Center, providing activities and resources for residents 60 years and older, and Woodbridge Youth Services, serving families and youth in our community.
   
     A Senior Services Social Worker and Municipal Agent will provide information on referral and outreach programs concerning health issues on the local, state and federal level.  A staff member is available for home visits, telephone contacts and family conferences. 
     Our trained CHOICES counselors are here to provide counseling and information on topics such as Medicare, Medicare Supplemental Insurance, Medicare HMO's, Long-Term Care Insurance and other state and federal benefit programs.
     Woodbridge Human Services sponsors a Friendly Visitor/Telephone Reassurance Program, which is an outreach program for the home bound, handicapped and elderly in Woodbridge. Through friendly visits and telephone calls, our goal is to help improve the quality of life for those who are feeling isolated and lonely due to decreased mobility.
     A notary public is available, free of charge, by appointment and to the home bound.
