The Cyber Social Safety Net

Locating community resources and services on the web can be a difficult task considering the staggering amount of information search engines return.  That is why we developed iSafetyNet, the first and only comprehensive directory of both public and private community resources and services.

Community Resources
Over the past decade, health and human service agencies have  embraced the Web as the point of entry for their consumer-friendly, 'one-stop-shop'  style of outreach and delivery of their community resources and services.  The national social safety net has quietly and efficiently migrated to the Internet with many community resources and services web sites being added every day.
Community Resources
We hope that you find iSafetyNet a useful tool to help you locate the community resources and services you and your loved ones need.
