As America’s population continues to age, senior centers around the country are trying to deal with ever greater demand for their programs and services and fewer resources to support them. This report is a careful and objective evaluation of the Fairfield Senior Center that asks whether it can meet this challenge in terms of its budget, its staffing level, its facility, its programs and services and its management processes. The report compares the Fairfield Senior Center to six others in the region and makes a series of recommendations which hopefully will make a good center even better. The report was accepted by the Human Services Commission on November 29th and presented to the Board of Selectmen on December 5th. The committee hopes that you’ll read the report and support its efforts to make the Fairfield Senior Center one of the very best in the state.
A brief but very useful guide that explains how renters and homeowners can get help, how to apply for disaster unemployment insurance and SNAP (food stamp) benefits. For more help, see the town's Storm Sandy help page.
The Department of Human Services is pleased to announce the publication of a brand new Community Resource Directory intended for Fairfield’s seniors, their families and community professionals. This 36-page booklet provides you with a list and description of the services, programs and support groups that could be of enormous help to you and your family when and if the need arises. It also includes a handy list of emergency phone numbers. This free publication is also available at the Fairfield Senior Center, and at Fairfield’s public libraries.
