COMMUNITY   RESOURCES

Dear Visitors,

Welcome to the Joi's Angels Community Resources page. This page contains two sections: 1) RESOURCES, and 2) COUNTY SERVICES.

 

The Resources section includes web links and literature on: Children & Families, Health & Nutrition, and Housing.

 

The County Services section includes information from each of the four counties Joi's Angels serves; it lists: County Agencies, Food Pantries/Soup Kitchens, Low- or No-cost Healthcare, Shelters, and Home Energy Assistance

 

Please feel free to scroll down or press the button related to the information you seek.  We hope that you find it useful.
