Headed by Kathleen Doherty-Peck, who runs the Senior Center, with assistance from Danielle Staubley, who also helps…More with the seniors, the Social Services Department helps Montville residents when they are in crisis.
When people are in emergency situations and need help with food, housing or energy costs, the department is there to help. It has a clothing bank, it can help find shelter and can offer guidance and referrals for people and families in trouble.
You can reach the Social Services office at 860-848-8820. The director's number is 860-848-0422.
The Youth Services Bureau is housed in a one-story storefront with a blue sign and brightly-painted windows, across…More the street from the entrance to town hall. Although it is not a big building, it is home to big programs.
The Bureau works to enrich the experiences of young men and women in Montville by giving them chances to grow—socially, educationally and emotionally. Among other things, it offers them a safe, drug- and violence-free place to go after school. Barbara Lockhart has directed the program for 14 years.
The Youth Services Bureau offers an after-school program for grades 4-12. It offers counseling, community service work and a playgroup program for parents and toddlers. Most of the programs offered here are free.
