INTRODUCTION
Info Line, Inc. is proud to present the 2011 edition of Where to Turn,
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 330-376-4643 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.

Info Line - Background Information:

Info Line, Inc. is a community-based not-for-profit organization assisting more than 80,000 individuals and

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 1,200 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. Individuals with a hearing impairment can

for free at www.211summit.org.

Info Line is 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:

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.
