Local Assistance Board

The Borough of Westwood Social Services is coordinated by the Director of Social Services and a committee of locally appointed residents, who together, constitute the Local Assistance Board.  The Board works together to help our neighbors maintain their quality of life and personal dignity during times of unexpected hardship.  

The mission of the Local Assistance Board is to assess the social, health, welfare and recreational needs of the residents of Westwood and assist in a confidential, supportive and professional manner during difficult times.  These services are available to children, individuals, couples, families, seniors and the disabled in our community.
