Department of Social Services – Peekskill

The Department of Social Services provides an array of services to Westchester residents in need of help, including the areas of child support, food, housing, medical services and home energy costs. It also provides protective and preventive services for vulnerable children and adults.

Temporary Assistance
In an effort to remove barriers to independence, we offer temporary assistanceto customers and applicants so they may gain self-sufficiency through employment and securing support and care for children.

Child Welfare
Our child welfare units conduct investigations and family assessments, provide in-home case management, and administer foster care and adoption services. We recognize that some segments of our population, adult and children, are vulnerable and require services to assist and protect them.

To apply for services or inquire about your benefits, call or visit the district office serving your area. My Benefits is a quick and easy way for people in New York State to find answers to questions about New York State’s programs and services.
