Welcome to the Hopkinton Human Services Department

No person should be without food, shelter, heat, or medical attention in our community.  Please do not hesitate to call if you or someone you know is in need of any of these basic necessities.

The mission of the Hopkinton Human Services Department is to enable individuals and families who find themselves in difficult situation to return to functioning as vital members of society without relinquishing their dignity.  Assistance is rendered in a professional manner at the lowest cost to the town taxpayers.

Financial assistance is rendered in accordance with the guidelines adopted by the Select Board and governed by State law.  Assistance may vary from one time food, fuel delivery, or prescription assistance, to many months of shelter costs or on-going medical costs, depending on the need presented and the eligibility of the applicant.  Clients sign an agreement to reimburse the Town when they become financially able.
