Information and Referrals


PA 2-1-1 Database

Help Line is in the process of entering our resources into the PA 2-1-1 database.  This database will be available to everyone with internet access.  This database is designed to find services not programs and agencies.  You can find agency and program information on the services pages.  Click on the logo at the right and it will take you to the advanced search page for services. On this page you can restrict the search by zip code or by geographic area served.  Some services may cover more than the county they are located in so it is best to search by geographic area.
