The Canton Area Helpline is a free telephone service that gives access to social service agencies as well as medical, dental, and mental health care providers, and to support groups. Your call will be answered by a concerned staff member who will discuss your personal problems with you.
Our purpose is to provide free food to eligible Canton residents. We serve many individuals and families, on a temporary basis, who have been affected by economic problems. The Food Pantry is operated entirely by volunteers who wish to help their fellow townspeople, by providing a basic human necessity.
The Veterans Services Department provides information, assistance and referral services to veterans and their dependents, assessing clients' eligibility for benefits, processing applications and preparing reports as required by the town and state.
