How to use these resources
On this resource page, you can find links to helpful websites and information about various resources local to Clark County and Portland. Each link in our list of topics can take you to groups of resources organized by category, making finding what you want easy. Every resource listed is followed by contact information, if applicable, and a description of what the resource can offer.
Sometimes it can take a few tries to find the resource that can best help you. Don't be afraid to keep calling places until someone can answer your questions or help you out. Remember to be respectful, persistent, and specific in order to find the assistance you are looking for.
Always feel welcome to call the TeenTalk line for additional support navigating or using these resources!

Thank you, Children's Home Society of Southwest Washington, Clark County Food Bank, Clark County Public Health, and Council for the Homeless. These lists helped us get a good start on creating our resource pages.
