The Town of Waterford offers case management services to individuals and families experiencing or facing homelessness. We provide a range of services to assist and support individuals in developing their skills to gain access to needed medical, behavioral health, housing, employment, social, educational, and other services essential to meeting basic human services. The department's Human Services Administrator assists residents with engaging in the Coordinated Access Network (CAN) for rehousing. The Human Services Administrator is a liaison between the Town and CAN in identifying residents at risk of losing their homes and determining the type of support needed to prevent homelessness.
