Site Description

This system includes:

Searching For Services: a comprehensive database of local community resources for consumers, caregivers, and service providers. You can search for resources by using keywords or by selecting topics. You can specify the geographic area of the search by choosing one of the geographic options. When viewing the search results list you can narrow it down further using several different tools that will help you find just the services you need. Go to the Welcome Page to start a search.

Sign In & Home Page: handy tools to store searches or plans (collections of services) that you can compile while using the site.

Print: print the list of services you've found.

E-mail: e-mail a list of services you've found to yourself or someone else.

Map The Results: see a map of the area covered by the services in your list, with the location of each service noted on the map. Or get a map and directions to an individual service location.

For Service Providers: a set of online tools that allow service providers to update their information in the database; to read and respond to e-mails from the public; and to see how frequently their services have been viewed or saved to users' personal service lists. (Service provider updates are reviewed by a data maintenance team before the updates are released to the live database).
