Your Community: Finding local resources

Knowing where to turn when a major life event happens or planning for your future can feel like an overwhelming task. Maybe you’re excited to start a new chapter of your life by looking for a new job, finding an apartment or choosing a healthcare provider. Alternatively, you or a loved one might be struggling with addiction, depression, food insecurity or in need of financial assistance. No matter the situation you’re facing, it can be a stressful period and trying to find help can feel just as daunting as the situation itself. Fortunately, the Johnson County Library has many recommended resources to help you through nearly any state of life. One such resource is My Resource Connection.
