Overseer of Public Welfare Details


The objective of the Town of Wilmot Welfare Department is to relieve and maintain economically disadvantaged citizens by providing basic food, shelter, and emergency medical assistance per RSA 165; to also provide information, advice and referral services; to build and maintain coordinated and cooperative relationships with local, state and federal agencies, and to meet the financial needs of the citizens.

Wilmot’s Welfare program is administered by an elected Overseer of Public Welfare.  The Town of Wilmot Welfare Department provides temporary emergency assistance to Wilmot residents for the basic necessities of life when all other resources have been exhausted.  For more information about Wilmot’s welfare services, the application process and qualification requirements please see the ‘Town of Wilmot Welfare Department General Assistance Guidelines’ below.
