Although we are working remotely, you can still reach us if you have a need. You can call 860-267-7300 extension 209. Do not hang up until you hear what sounds like a dial tone. If you do not use the extension or if you hang up too early, your call will not be received. All calls will be rerouted to the Director of Social Services/Youth and Family Services.
