Information and Referral

The Information and Referral (I & R) Program assists clients with additional needs that public assistance programs may not address.  If LCDJFS does not have a program or funding to assist your specific needs, we can refer you to other agencies or organizations that can help.  These needs include:

  • Prescriptions
  • Housing/shelter for homeless and transient individuals
  • Furniture referrals 
  • Eye glasses
  • Food
  • Utility bill shut-offs
  • Rent

If you need assistance with any of the above needs, call the LCDJFS Call Center at 1-844-640-6446 and ask to speak to someone in the I & R Department.  Walk-ins are also accepted during normal business hours.
