HUMAN SERVICES REGIONS AND TOWNS THEY COMPRISE

By: Robin K. Cohen, Principal Analyst

You asked for a listing of the regions, and towns they comprise, for the state's four main human services agencies:

1. Children and Families (DCF),

2. Developmental Services (DDS),

3. Mental Health and Addiction Services (DMHAS), and

4. Social Services (DSS).

DCF has six regions covering the state, with service areas in each. DDS and DSS each have three regions covering the northern, southern, and western parts of the state, but DSS maintains either a large regional office or a sub-office within the larger regions. DMHAS has five service regions throughout the state.

Table 1 lists the state's 169 towns alphabetically and the agency region and service area, if applicable, in which each resides.
