Community Resources Handbook

The following list encompasses four months of research in preparation to begin the TimRose Foundation. 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 12 years; the Casemanager Resource Book, which covers the entire United States;The Danbury phone book; the Senior Services handbook; and personal one-to-one contacts.

Effective April 22, 1996, all of the phone numbers and addresses are accurate. However, as you know, the health care community is changing rapidly, so that updates will need to be done to this database on a regular basis.

This catalog was developed by Heidi Palmer, MHA candidate, W.C.S.U, Branch Director of Olsten Kimberly Quality Care. If you have additions or corrections, please call 792-6400, or email to HPalmer313@aol.com .

Please duplicate and use this at will.
