The Community Resource Guide is a tool to help members of the community locate organizations that can assist with a variety of services ranging from shelter to food and even medical resources. The listing below is divided into the following categories: Long-Term Housing, Immediate Shelter, Food Pantries, Medical, Employment, and Legal. Each resource will have its address, phone number, linked website, brief description, and any known documents that may be needed to use the services they provide. 

Near the bottom of the page, you will find a list of commonly needed documents/forms and ways to possibly obtain them or replacements. 

You may also print our Community Resource Guide for information about local organizations and services.
