Residents can call the hotline, and trained volunteers will work with them to identify their needs.    

“We also have a referral network set up.. We have a coalition of about 15 non-profit partners, which we set up as a referral network.. Any sort of need someone is calling with, we can make sure we get them the help they need, ” Lecuyer stated.  

The hotline number is open Monday-Friday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.  (518)-621-3536
