In almost every county, there are trained professionals whose job it is to know about local resources and to help you access what is available. Those professionals are called Information & Assistance Specialists. They can make finding local resources much easier and they can help you get connected to the right contact person to access services. Often they know what paperwork will need to be completed and what documentation, if any, you will need to have. Call them. They are there to help.
