The goal of Dukes County’s Social Service Department is to support lower-income Dukes County residents to be economically and socially secure, and to empower them to achieve and maintain stability and wellbeing.
The Social Services Caseworker assists Islanders with public benefits including Fuel Assistance and Food Stamps (SNAP, the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program). The Caseworker can help with applications and follow up to ensure that people who qualify can get the benefits they need. The Caseworker will also help with related programs such as discounts for electric bills and cell phones, and additional food and nutrition supports.
These services are provided in partnership with the Community Action Committee of Cape Cod and the Islands (www.cacci.org) and the South Shore Community Action Council (www.sscac.org) .
