PEOPLE, SUPPORT and SERVICES
Community Resource Directory
NicBluCaresNOW.com consolidates support for free and reduced cost social services into one central database, increasing the accessibility, efficiency and impact of community programs.
The online directory allows service providers and community members alike to rapidly access support and services on the same platform.
Service providers can claim their programs and access analytics: learn what people search for, how many people viewed programs, etc.
NicBluCaresNOW.com introduces belonging and support as social determinants of health. These basic needs can also impact our health and wellbeing.
Contact or refer directly to programs found. ‘Closing the loop’ on referrals informs providers when services requested are received.
Sharing Directory knowledge helps others to connect and access support. This is social bridging, known as social prescribing for professionals.
Share lists of favorite programs; Keep notes about programs and people you are helping; Team management and scheduling tools.
