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 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.
