Community Help Line & Information Service

In the last twelve years, the Community Helpline volunteers have responded to hundreds of requests for help (averages 100-120 cases per year).  Many individuals and families in challenging circumstances have been provided with assistance in the form of information, professional referral, counseling, and in some cases temporary housing assistance.
