Be proactive in identifying key resources in your community before a need arises. Community prevention coalitions often have many. Most communities have referral services for a variety of health and human services including the county health department, 2-1-1 referral system via telephone or internet (not in every community), hospital referral, free clinic, etc. Your physician or clergy can be great sources of information but are also good resources for referral.
