Community Resources Handbook

The following list encompasses months of research in preparation to gain my Masterís Degree in Health Administration at W.C.S.U. One of my goals was to develop a catalog that reflects the vast array of services available in the Greater Danbury Area. This information was compiled from the contacts that I have made in the community over the past 17 years; the Casemanager Resource Book, The Fairfield County phone book; the Senior Services handbook; and personal one-to-one contacts.

Effective October 22, 2001, all of the phone numbers and addresses are accurate. However, as you know, the health care community is changing rapidly, so that updates will be done to this database on a regular basis.

This catalog was developed by Heidi Palmer, R.N., M.H.A, Clinical Resource Management, Danbury Hospital. If you have additions or corrections, please call 797-7309, or email to Heidip212@gmail.com .

Please duplicate and use this at will.
