At Comprehensive Life Resources, we have been providing behavioral health services to the Tacoma and Pierce County community for over 50 years, and homeless outreach services for over 20 years. In the last two years, there has been a need for an easily accessible, easy-to-use, electronic resource guide for those experiencing homelessness and poverty. This project, Pierce County Resources at www.piercecountyresources.com, was the culmination of many hours of research and coding and data management and is still a work in progress. Using Operations Dashboard and Survey123, as well as Squarespace for website management, an interactive tool was created to allow for users to conduct their own research for resources in their area. Categories include: Clothing, Food, Shelter, Substance Use Treatment, Employment Services, Domestic Violence or Sexual Assault Services, and many more. Since many services are gender-specific, there is an easy to follow pictogram guide to filter services to men, women, families, veterans, or members of the LGBTQ community. The response to the launch of this website in December 2018 has been overwhelmingly positive, despite the site needing more resources.
