Local Organization Directory

Search for Local Organizations

This index features 840+ local social service agencies, self-help groups, civic, service and common-interest clubs, neighborhood associations, and faith-based organizations.

Annually updated entries include contact information, services provided, the organization’s goals or mission, non-profit status, and more.

Call or email for more information about the Local Organization Directory.


Please note: The keyword, nonprofit and name searches on the directory are currently not functioning fully. Organizations whose records were recently updated do not appear in these searches. We are currently working to fix this issue.

  • To find a certain organization, press ENTER and look for it by name in the alphabetical listing.
  • You can also look under the subject search, which works just fine.

We apologize for the inconvenience.
