About The Guide

  The Community Resource Guide was developed by the Community Resource Group, which consists of local human service providers from agencies such as: Putnam Community Action Program, Putnam County Health Department, Putnam County Community Affairs, WestCop Therapeutic Nursery/Headstart, Garden Street Elementary School, Henry H. Wells Middle School, Brewster High School, Putnam Valley Middle School, Carmel High School, Putnam Family Support and Advocacy, Putnam Associated Resource Center (PARC), Hudson Valley Cerebral Palsy Association, Putnam Family & Community Services and Putnam/Northern Westchester Women’s Resource Center.  The guide is not indicative of all agencies within PutnamCounty, but is intended as a quick reference for identified issues facing many community members.  Agencies/community members are encouraged to copy the guide and distribute as needed.


  If you would like your agency to be included in the guide or edit the information regarding your agency, please contact the Putnam Community Action Program’s Assistant Director at (845) 278-8021, ext. 13 or send an email to: pcapmo@bestweb.net.  A revised edition of the guide will be distributed approximately once a year.
