Care Coordination Services

Primarily Care Coordination focuses on behavioral/mental health needs and referred to appropriate services.

 In addition, referrals may also be offered for mentorship, youth development, and Parks and Recreational programs.


Mayor's Summer Youth Employment

The Mayor's Summer Youth Program goes through a arduous training week before getting jobs. Teams are moved out of their comfort zone through mock interviews, creative team discussion, and introductions. They are then sent out to thrive in the workplace as interns, where they gain work experience as well as earn money.


Family Navigation

Family Navigation is a program offered to all Norwalk Residents. A trusted relationship is developed to connect individuals and families to community resources.
