findhelpidaho.org LAUNCHES IN IDAHO THANKS TO COLLABORATIVE OF HEALTH & COMMUNITY LEADERS
BOISE, IDAHO – As part of a statewide collaborative, Idaho Health Data Exchange (IHDE) in partnership with United Way of Treasure Valley and other community-based organizations is excited to announce the launch of findhelpidaho.org.
The creation of findhelpidaho.org began with the recognition of a problem: the state of Idaho is resource rich but navigating resources can be a barrier for both social service providers and community members seeking services. findhelpidaho.org is a tool to make the search process easier, leading to greater social and health outcomes.
The goal of findhelpidaho.org is to make finding community resources easy so that Idaho residents can get the help they need to lead healthy, successful lives. findhelpidaho.org serves all 278 zip codes in our state and is committed to including free and reduced-cost services that meet the needs of Idaho residents.
Housing assistance, food pantries, medical care, and transportation are just a few of the resources available on findhelpidaho.org. Zip code searches list the closest local programs first and searches are completely anonymous. Combined with the resources of the national findhelp platform, findhelpidaho.org can also pull in regional, statewide, and national services.
“United Way is proud to be part of the statewide collaborative launching findhelpidaho.org,” said United Way of Treasure Valley Community Resources Connector Anne Wolverton. “The user-friendly website specializes in quickly connecting individuals to free and reduced-cost services, allowing Idaho residents to find the help they need to lead healthy and successful lives. We see this as another positive step towards health equity in our state.”
This statewide collaborative of Idaho-based partners remains a trailblazer in the social needs and health care space across the nation, acting as one of the first groups of its kind.
