INTRODUCTION
Info Line, Inc. is proud to present the 2011 edition of Where to Turn the directory of health and human Turn, service organizations serving residents of Summit County. Info Line is committed to helping individuals and families who live and work in Summit County to improve their quality of life by locating and using existing community resources. The Where to Turn directory contains critical information about hundreds of essential community services and resources. It should prove to be valuable to people experiencing a wide range of needs and concerns. Professionals and volunteers in such fields as health and human services, public safety, education, government, business and the arts will also find this directory helpful in resolving the needs and concerns of those individuals and families they come into contact with on a daily basis. Every effort has been made to ensure that the information in this directory is as complete and accurate as possible as of the date of publication. However, important information may have changed since the date of this publication and/or new services may have become available since the printing of this directory. Info Line’s computerized database of service information is updated on a daily basis and contains a more complete listing of services and resources available for residents of Summit County. Please visit www.infolineinc.org or www.211summit.org for more information. You are also encouraged to contact Info Line for further assistance if you are unable to find the service you need in this directory. You can use the following 24-hour phone numbers to contact Info Line: • • • Dial the three-digit number 2-1-1 anywhere in Summit County Dial 330-376-6660 Dial 330-376-4643 for TTY/TDD services

You may notice that the Where to Turn directory does not list every resource in our community. Some providers have asked Info Line not to publish information about their organization and services for different reasons. In some cases, anonymity was preferred where the person(s) providing the services were volunteers and worked out of their homes. Some service organizations want the public to access their services through a general clearinghouse like Info Line because of concerns about excess demand and limited resources of the provider such as small food pantries and homeless shelters. Other organizations, such as shelters for abused women, want to keep their location confidential to protect those making use of their services. Finally, this directory generally contains information about non-profit and government offices. It does not include for-profit, proprietary businesses unless they offer an important service not met by public or non-profit agencies. Info Line does not rate, recommend or endorse any organization or service listed in this directory or in its database. This information is simply provided as a public service. I hope that you find this directory useful. If you have any questions or concerns about the contents of this directory, please contact us at your earliest convenience.

Helpful hints and suggestions:
• Each entry includes the name, address, phone number(s) and a brief description of the organization and its services. Descriptions highlight the major services of each provider and do not attempt to mention every program. Because information changes, we encourage users of “Where To Turn” to inform us of any changes or corrections. We welcome your comments and suggestions. The main body of the directory lists agencies alphabetically along with phone numbers, a brief agency description, and other useful information including web sites and email addresses. Some of the smaller support groups whose leadership changes often may not have a phone number listed in this directory. Call Info Line and we will supply you with the current contact information or have them get in touch with you. Use the Service Index to find agencies that provide the services you need. Please call Info Line if you cannot find the appropriate service. Call the agency ahead of time because the service you are interested in may be offered on certain days or at specific locations. Ask for information about the service(s) and how to receive them. When you call, it is a good idea to have in front of you your Social Security number and information such as family size, ages of your children, what town you live in and your income sources and amount. When you call, have paper and a pen or pencil in front of you to write down what the agency tells you. If you need additional help with something you find or can’t find in this directory, call Info Line. We can assist you 24 hours a day, every day. We have information about all kinds of services and will be glad to help you.
