Stamford Social Services Reopening

Stamford Social Services office reopening

I have some good news to share for Stamford - starting Monday, August 8, the Department of Social Services (DSS) Stamford office will reopen for business. The building has been closed since early April due to water damage, but the repairs have now been finished. While Stamford-area clients were able to access the agency online or through other offices in the interim, I'm glad to see the office reopen so that it can continue to be a resource for the Stamford community.

DSS staff will be available weekdays from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. to assist clients and applicants.  The agency administers services for children, families, individuals with disabilities and older adults, including health care coverage, food and nutrition assistance, child support, temporary family assistance and state-administered general assistance. 

The DSS Stamford field office is located at 1642 Bedford Avenue. Information on DSS and available programs can be found at
