Our Cayuga County NY Connects is where individuals, concerned family members, friends, or helping professionals can go for help in finding the information, services, and supports that they are looking for.

A VERY IMPORTANT REMINDER
We know that many folks like to just drop by the office when they have a question or concern. However, we would appreciate it if you would call to set up an appointment. In this way, it allows us to better prepare for your visit in getting the necessary paperwork or records pulled together. Further, it allows us to estimate the time necessary for the particular reason for your visit. That way we can give you the fullest attention to the matter and not be rushed by the clock. Therefore, it’s always best to call and schedule your appointment so that we can give you the time and attention to serve you better . We appreciate your patience!
