CANTON SENIOR & SOCIAL SERVICES DEPARTMENT
REQUESTING COMMUNITY INPUT FOR STRATEGIC PLANNING
The Canton Senior and Social Services Department is seeking community input via an online-based survey. The department holds a number of responsibilities within the town of Canton and has embarked on a strategic planning endeavor. The first step in collecting input as to how the department is doing and what kinds of areas they should prioritize in their work is a community survey.
The survey is available HERE
A link to the survey has been placed on the town's website and is also available in hard copy by stopping into the office, which is located in the lower level of the Community Center at 40 Dyer Avenue.
This project to guide the Town of Canton Senior and Social Services for the next 5 years started as a charge that came from the leadership in town. The department administers social services and hosts events and programs through the Senior Center as well. All Canton residents and anyone who has interacted with the department are encouraged to provide input.
It is intended to gather feedback on our current programs and services as well as future needs.
The survey is 10 questions and should take about 3 minutes to complete. The survey will be open through Sunday, January 6, 2019.
Members of the temporary Senior & Social Services Strategic Planning Committee and the Commission on Aging will be at the following locations with paper copies of the surveys at the following locations and days.
