The Greenwich Department of Human Services Fund (DHS Fund) now welcomes
contributions that will help meet the growing demand for services due to the stress caused by the COVID-19 virus.
The Department has seen a significant increase in new referrals and anticipates a much greater caseload than usual in coming weeks.
The increased demand is primarily for food, rental assistance, and assistance with utility payments.
The mission of the DHS Fund, launched in the summer of 2018, is to accept charitable contributions to support programs and services offered by the Greenwich Dept of Human Services and to promote community awareness of the needs that these programs and services address.
Among the Department programs that have traditionally received support from
private contributions are the Campership Program, Back to School, the Greenwich Youth Conservation Program, and Holiday Aid.
The Fund is a 501 ( c ) 3 organization, with contributions fully tax deductible. To
