Welfare Office

The Town of Goffstown Human Services Office administers General Assistance to Goffstown residents in need under RSA 165. In this capacity, the Human Services Office provides for basic needs such as shelter, food, utilities, and medication. The General Assistance is provided on a short-term, emergency basis until recipients become employed or receive long-term assistance from the state or federal government. All recipients of General Assistance agree to reimburse the Town when they return to an income status that allows them to do so.

Each applicant will be interviewed confidentially to review household circumstances and eligibility for assistance.

For further information regarding our assistance programs, contact the Human Services Office.
