Department of Community Services

As a precautionary measure with regard to the COVID-19 virus, The Gilliam Building is closed to the public until further notice.

As of April 1, there will no longer be a dropbox available outside the building. All correspondence to the department should be sent by mail or email. 

(When mailing any payments please only submit check or money orders. For all loan payments we will waive interest during the COVID-19 Pandemic.)

Please call (302) 395-5600 for assistance or use our online resources to conduct business with the department. 

The Department of Community Services provides a wide range of services to New Castle County residents and visitors that will strengthen families and individuals, build social capital, improve neighborhoods, and ensure places and spaces to live, learn, play, socialize, and recreate.
