This directory is meant to provide resources as defined by category. If your listing is missing, contact us. Inclusion in the database is a privilege not a right, and organizations may be refused to be included. An organization may request consideration. Inclusion does not imply endorsement and omission does not indicate disapproval.
How We Collect and Display the Information
BIRCofWI makes a serious commitment to maintaining an accurate database. Our most dynamic resource for information is our callers themselves. Since our own Resource Facilitation Specialists are accessing the data every single day and giving information to callers, we often hear about new information or inaccurate records when changes are fresh. We also subscribe to newsletters and newspapers, looking for new or changed information. We also rely on agencies to let us know when they are getting inappropriate referrals or when they have new programs. We send annual printouts to each listing in our database, showing them the details we have about their services and sites. They can then review their information, and send us back their corrections or verify that their information is still accurate.
Listings are indexed for “primary services” only, and not for “secondary services.” Primary services are entry-point services; secondary services are services that a consumer receives once they begin to interact with or become a client of the organization.
Our database is updated monthly as we learn about changes. Our Resource Librarian continually checks listings and contacts to verify changes to ensure that our data is as accurate and up-to-date as possible. We encourage you to contact us immediately if you see any information in our database that you believe is inaccurate.
