INTRODUCTION

Info Line, Inc. is proud to present the 2010 edition of Where to Turn, the directory of health and human
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 330-650-2603 in Northern Summit County
• 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 provided simply 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.

Info Line - Background Information:

Info Line, Inc. is a community-based not-for-profit organization assisting more than 80,000
individuals and families each year to secure services and resources. Our mission is to improve the
quality of life for those who live and work in Summit County by helping them to locate and effectively
use existing community resources. Since 1975, Info Line has helped people in need 24 hours a day,
seven days a week. It is the sole source for comprehensive information and referral, senior
information and referral, and childcare resource and referral services in Summit County.

Info Line maintains a computerized database of over 1,100 health and human services organizations
and programs. The database contains extensive detailed information about each service offered by
an organization including all necessary contact information, eligibility requirements, hours of
operation, fees for services, information and documents required to receive services, and languages
spoken by service staff. This information is updated on a daily basis, and is available to the public for
free by dialing 2-1-1 anywhere in Summit County or by calling 330-376-6660 or 330-650-2603
(Northern Summit County). Individuals with a hearing impairment can access this information via
TTY/TDD at (330) 376-4643. A searchable resource database is also available at www.211summit.org.

Info Line is only one of six organizations in the State of Ohio that has been
accredited by the Alliance of Information and Referral Systems (AIRS) – the
international professional organization for the field of information and
referral. This accreditation documents Info Line’s compliance with all
professional standards that have been developed for the provision of quality
information and referral services. Info Line’s services are provided by highly
trained and experienced professional staff. The staff receives training in
crisis intervention, communications and listening skills, problem solving and
advocacy, customer service, and cultural sensitivity.

In addition to its information and referral services, Info Line also operates:

• Child Care Connection: Assists parents in securing child care resources and offers training and
technical assistance for early childhood personnel as well as family child care providers.

• MedAssist: Helps uninsured, low-income Summit County residents to access free and low-
cost prescription medications.

• Lifeline: Offers an emergency response monitoring service for frail elderly and others with
serious life-threatening health conditions.

• Project Connect: Provides technology training and technical assistance program to help not-
for-profit organizations make more effective use of computer, telecommunication and
internet technology.

• HMIS: Maintains a community database used to collect data about homeless services in
Akron and Summit County. Provides technical support, training and networking for
participating agencies.

• Community Voice Mail: Helps people living in poverty, transition and homelessness rebuild
their lives by connecting them to jobs, housing, information and hope.
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.
