The state Department of Social Services is re-locating its Middletown field office to a larger, modern facility at 2081 South Main Street (Route 17) on Monday, Nov. 9.
The new office will have upgraded service areas, ample parking and other improvements for the public and about 70 staff members.
DSS clients in Middletown and nearby towns are receiving mailed notices that the agency is moving from its long-time address at 117 Main Street Extension to the new office on South Main Street/Route 17.
Office hours are 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. South Main Street/Route 17 is served by Middletown Area Transit bus service. More information about the new office and the option to reach DSS online, instead of visiting in-person, is at www.ct.gov/dss/middletown.
DSS administers services for children, families, adults, people with disabilities and the elderly, including health care coverage, food and nutrition assistance, child support services and temporary family assistance.
