Where to Turn for Help

During these difficult times, many community members are in a vulnerable position. Those who once felt financially secure are worried about paying for food or rent.  Children who sought refuge in their classrooms are now at home without access to the same social services.  Many of our neighbors are wading through grief and loss without the comfort of in-person social support.  It’s difficult to know where to look when you or someone you know is hurting.

Luckily, Taylor has a wealth of resources for those who are struggling.  Below, you will find an updated list of links and phone numbers to organizations that can make a difference.  You are not alone, and the library is always here to help you find what you need.
