About Us

There are three components to the Department of Elder and Human Services:

  • We are the Human Services agency that assists any Canton resident, of any age, in need of social services interventions.
  • We are the Department of Elder Affairs/COA responsible for meeting the needs of any Canton resident, 55 years of age or older, through outreach programs and services, designed to help them maintain their independence in the community.
  • We are the Canton Senior Center where a host of educational programs, health clinics, social events and activities take place.
