Mission Statement/Duties & Responsibilities
The basic local welfare duty is described---somewhat vaguely---in RSA 165:1, I, which says:
"Whenever a person in any town is poor and unable to support himself, he shall be relieved and maintained by the overseers of public welfare of such town, whether or not he has a residence there".

The Town of Enfield has specific guidelines to determine eligibility for assistance.  An applicant must seek aid from all other federal, state, and community agencies before applying for local welfare.  After receiving assistance they must comply with certain conditions in order to receive future benefits, i.e.: employment search, work program, budget counseling.

The food pantry is available to all families.  Nonperishable items are generously donated from town churches, local organizations, and residents.  Donations are always greatly appreciated.
