Town Welfare was established to fill a temporary need until something else happens such as employment, state aid, Social Security, etc. It is not intended to subsidize rent for someone living beyond ones' means.

Each client deserves dedicated time and attention to address their individual needs. Appointments are not necessary. There is only one staff person at  the Milford Welfare Department, so please be patient.
