Published on

The world of social services can be a bewildering maze for the vulnerable populations it seeks to serve – ex-offenders, returning veterans, the homeless, immigrants, and people with disabilities. With a community resource guide, public libraries become local information clearinghouses. Make a difference in your community! Using a real-life model, learn how to compile, print, and distribute a highly accessible resource that points toward housing, jobs, education, medical help, transportation…and even the library!
