For the longest time, social workers and social services have each maintained their own private list of resources.  The problem has always been that’s it’s been difficult to ensure the information was up-to-date and accurate.  Worse yet, this type of information was not always available to the public… the very people requesting this information.


PurpleBinder is starting to change that.  Social services are starting to put information about their services into one database, making it available to everyone.  The 46th Ward Office has found this site is already quite comprehensive, and it is the start of a new way to learn about resources available to assist you.


Types of services include child care, dental and health, mental health, housing, and employment.
