The Social Services Office serves the needs of the residents of Kennebunk. We provide resources, information, and need-based support to individuals and families.
This office administers the General Assistance program, which provides assistance to individuals and families who meet the state mandated requirements for eligibility. General assistance is intended for people who are unable, not unwilling, to provide food, shelter, utilities, fuel, clothing, and certain other essential items for themselves and their families.
Applications for General Assistance are taken by appointment. Please contact the office if you are in need of assistance.
