The Department of Human Services was created by the City Manager and approved by the Mayor and Municipal Council under a plan for the reorganization of municipal departments effective July 1, 1996. This new division which incorporates the Health Department, Recreation Department, Senior Citizen Program, and Welfare Department is an attempt to more effectively and efficiently serve the human services needs of the citizens of Clifton.

The Recreation Department was divided with the Maintenance Division being transferred to the jurisdiction of the Department of Public Works and the program division under the Department of Human Services. The Director of Human Services acts as the Health Officer and supervises the Health Department staff. In addition, the director supervises the Recreation Division which is headed by a Recreation Supervisor, the Senior Citizen Program which is headed by a Program Supervisor and the Welfare program which provides services to Clifton residents through a contract with the Passaic County Department of Social Services. The Clifton Health Department is a contractual health agency serving the Township of Little Falls.    

Public health is ROI Video!
APHA is happy to announce the launch of a new video that answers the question, “Is public health a return on investment?” This video shows how public health surrounds us and has an impact in all aspects of our lives, and why we need to prioritize public health funding. Watch to learn how public health saves both money and lives, and share with others to help us spread the message.
