How do we find the social services that our clients need? Here are a few suggestions for where we can get help finding them help.

For forty years the Crisis Clinic  has offered telephone-based crisis intervention and information and referrals to community services for youth and adults in Seattle-King County, WA. We can get community resource information from the Crisis Clinic by calling 211, by searching their online database or by using one of their Where to Turn books. The LWTech bookstore sells copies of this directory and the LWTech library has copies available on reserve.

Senior Information & Assistance is a program of Senior Services. They also provide an online database of resources for local seniors and assistance by phone: (206) 448-3110.
