Identifying Service Providers

The Children’s Services Coalition launched this interactive website to serve as a portal to identify appropriate agencies providing services for children and their families in 27 service areas. It is a one-stop source of streamlined information and resources for children in need.  #CSCStL

 

One Stop Shopping

Did you know? “The Children’s Service Coalition (of which we are an active member) website has served as an amazing tool to get updated resources to our families in crisis,” said Sherry Rischbieter, Crisis Counselor in the Hancock Place School District. “It’s like ‘one stop shopping’ to sit down with a family, identify all of their needs, search for the agencies who could best provide resources for them, print information from the websites and immediately start making phone calls. I keep a stack of the Children’s Service Coalition cards in my purse and I hand them out every opportunity I have whether it is for families in need or other social service workers who are looking for resources.”  #CSCStL  Learn More
