In a crisis such as this, we may not know exactly what type of help we need or we’re unsure of what is offered.  We asked Cheshire Human Services to put together a list of local and state resources that may be of help to you or someone you know.  Please don’t hesitate to contact one of these organizations if needed.

Cheshire Human Services 203-271-6690 for general information and referrals.

They also offer several financial resources for individuals and families in need (eligibility criteria does exist).  They are also on facebook.
