The Teaneck Department of Health and Human Services recently relocated its social services offices to the 2nd Floor of the Richard Rodda Center. Officials believe the widely used recreation center will be a more convenient location for residents than the previous office located inside the municipal complex.
Through a partnership that Age-Friendly Teaneck helped arrange, this new office is also being staffed by a Master of Social Work candidate who has been trained to help refer residents to assistance programs or social services they may need and be eligible for. The MSW student will be supervised by staff at the non-sectarian Jewish Family and Children's Services of Northern New Jersey, a non-profit provider of social services in the region.
The Teaneck Division of Social Services provides financial service through the Public Assistance Trust fund for those individuals or families who are eligible and facing a hardship. The office also can provide Township residents with information about other available resources in the region, including referrals to programs that assist older adults and their caregivers.
The office will be staffed on Tuesdays and Thursdays, between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Residents may also call 201-837-1600, ext. 7164, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or log onto the department website at www.teanecknj.gov/social-services.
