RCIL is pleased to announce the creation of an online database of local/regional community based services. The online database is part of the Peer Integration Demonstration Project which RCIL was awarded last year. It’s designed to be user friendly. There are many different ways to search community based services, for example, you can search by zip code, by type, or by name. The database is continually growing and will be updated as new information becomes available. – Click Here to Join or Learn More
