Statement from Commissioner Martineau

“I pledge to conduct our business in the most efficient manner which results in savings to our taxpayers, but not at the expense of our less fortunate citizens and those who are really needy and deserving assistance”

Department Vision Statement

“To improve the quality of life for those disadvantaged members of our community, and to do so in the most professional and respectful manner.”

Department Mission Statement

“The Welfare Department provides emergency assistance to individuals and families who lack adequate resources. We are facilitators in that we direct the less fortunate citizens to relief agencies, i.e., federal, state, non-profit, etc. therefore reducing the burden on our departmental budget and the Manchester taxpayers. We strive to promote self-reliance and independence in all we serve so they may become productive citizens.”
