Community Resource Information System
The CommunityPoint resource database is designed to be a comprehensive resource database. Any organization or entity meeting the Inclusion/Exclusion criteria may be included. However, the focus of the database is on those services offered to those located in DuPage County where the service meets an essential human and/or economic need. Areas targeted include: clothing and household goods, education, employment, income and financial resources, individual and family support, legal, food, health (dental, medical, mental), housing and utilities, and transportation. Agencies and services must meet all criteria, as explicitly stated within the Inclusions/Exclusion Plan, to be included in the CommunityPoint resource database.
