  • New point data…Over the last year we’ve reached out to 2-1-1 agencies across the state to display their data. As of September, 2010, we have 211 data for 16 counties.We’ve also added Hospitals, Head Start agencies, and data from The California Department of Education. Other points that have often been requested, such as Alcohol Outlets, EPA sites, etc., are available only in the Map room, and not the Service room.
