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.”
