The Help Book
White Bird Clinic has published a human services resource guide called the “Help Book” since the 1980’s. It contains a comprehensive listing of resources of people seeking health and housing resources, financial assistance, shelter, food pantries and meal sites, and help to meet other basic needs. It helps people navigate the system.
This year, the publication has been updated and printed as booklets. We are able to distribute them free of charge thanks to contributions from Lane County Health and Human Services, the City of Eugene, Sponsors, Community Supported Shelter, HIV Alliance, and Eugene Mennonite Church.
