    Adopt-A-Family

    Norwich Human Services and Norwich Youth and Family Services are seeking individuals and organizations that are willing to adopt one or more families for our “Adopt-A-Family” program this Holiday season.  All Families are from the Norwich area, have been screened by a case manager, are known to be in need and most are living below the poverty level.

    Thanks to the kind and generous support in the past by individuals and organizations such as you, we are able to make holidays more joyful for many young children in the community.  If you or your organization would be willing to adopt at least one family, we would greatly appreciate your support.

    You may contact us at (860) 823-3778 or by email at NHS@cityofnorwich.org

    Please indicate the family size you would be willing to sponsor.  You or your organization will then be sent information about a family in need.  The information will include the first names, ages, sizes and special interests of each family member.

    Please consider sharing this request with your family and friends to help us identify new sponsors.

    Thank you!  Your kindness will not be forgotten.

    AARP Smart Driver Course

    Dates will be posted in January

    9:00 AM – 1:00 PM

    The AARP Smart Driver Course (formally Driver’s Safety) is the nation’s first and largest refresher course for drivers age 50 and older. It has given millions of older drivers the skills and tools they need to drive safely on today’s roads. In fact, 97% of those who take it change at least one driving behavior.

    And the best part? There are no tests to pass – just useful information to keep you safe on the road! You may get an insurance discount after taking this course! Auto insurance companies in most states provide a multi-year discount to course graduates! Please consult your insurance agent for more information about discounts available to you.

    Cost: $15 AARP Members     $20 AARP Non-Members

    Pay by check or cash on the day of the class

    I wanted to take a moment to remind everyone to make sure they do the following:

    2. If you are registered, please update your information (address, phone number, emergency contact, etc.) with your Membership renewal or as it changes throughout the year.
    3. Obtain a SCAN CARD, if you don’t already have one. PLEASE USE IT.  If you are unsure how to use it, see a staff member and we will gladly show you.  The statistics are very vital to maintain what we offer by showing usage of our classes, programs and services.
