The Division of Social Services is moving!
Release Date: June 08, 2006


The Sussex County Division of Social Services is moving to a new location.

After more than 60 years at 18 Church Street, Newton, Social Services is moving 2 blocks to 83 Spring Street, Newton.  The new Social Service location is the former Shelby’s department store location.

The move will begin on Thursday June 29th, and completed by July 5th.

The new location will offer the public private interviews, and a larger, more comfortable reception area.

Our phone number (973.383.3600) will not change. 

Note: The new voice mail system has 4 digit extensions, not 3.  To contact a specific staff member directly, enter a ‘5’ plus the old 3 digit extension.

The fax number remains the same (973.383.3627), as does the mailing address (PO Box 218, Newton NJ 07860-0218

The building is completely handicapped accessible with both a ramp, and an elevator.  You can enter from Spring Street, but the most direct entrance is from the parking lot behind the building on Trinity Street.


Parking is limited and available as follows.

Free parking, space available:

Visitors’ spaces at the nearby Sussex County Administrative Center,

The Sussex County parking deck behind the courthouse,

The Church Street parking lot (until the old Social Services building is sold).

Not free parking:

Town of Newton metered parking behind Social Services’ new location, and other parking lots,

Trinity Street Town of Newton metered parking,

Social Services will be open during the move, but we will interview people on an emergency priority basis first.  We suggest that if it is not an emergency that you do not contact us between June 29th and July 5th.

Thank you,

Jeff Daly ACSW LSW

Director of Welfare
