Services

    The Preston Senior Affairs Office has taken on a slightly different way of conducting business.

    Due to the COVID-19 coronavirus, face-to-face interaction is temporarily on hold until such time as the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic has been eliminated. I will continue to accept telephone messages and adjust regular support in completing re-determination forms, SNAP applications, etc. to requesting that you use the US Postal service or the Blue Drop Box located in the front of the Preston Town Hall to deliver your documents to me. Safety is a priority!

    The Blood Pressure Screening conducted monthly at Lincoln Park Housing has been cancelled until further notice.
