The Municipal Welfare Department administers the General Assistance Program, a state funded program for eligible adults and childless couples. The Department also provides information and referral services and assists residents with applications for other programs.
The Human Services Coordinator Director is in the office on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1 p.m to 4:30 p.m., but collects voice messages all week.
Millburn Township operates a food pantry for Millburn-Short Hills residents in need. The pantry is available by appointment only and is mainly stocked with non-perishable foods. For more information or to make an appointment, please contact the Township Social Worker, Ana Millan at (973) 535-7961 ext. 231 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that all communication between the social worker and pantry manager, Annette Romano, as well as its volunteers is strictly confidential. Food drop-offs can be made at the resident's home or arranged for a more discrete location, local-only.
