Find Local Help

The Look4Help Public Resource Directory, a program of Community Action Pioneer Valley, is a free, web-based public information service that is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. There are close to 1,000 agencies, programs, and services at over 450 locations, available to serve you.

Look4Help was created in response to a community need for a centralized online tool to facilitate communication of available resources, service information, referrals, and a coordination of services.

The Look4Help website provides a free on-line searchable listing of supportive local resources, and includes detailed, up-to-date information about organizations and their programs. Look4Help lists the services of non-profit organizations, government agencies, health and human services, medical and mental health providers, and others.

Look4Help serves the residents of Franklin and Hampshire Counties and the North Quabbin region of Western Massachusetts. Where services overlap, Look4Help also includes resources covering portions of Worcester, Hampden, and Berkshire counties. Selected regional and state agencies are also listed.

Community Action Pioneer Valley assists people who have low incomes to achieve economic stability and security, and works to build communities in which all people have the opportunity to thrive throughout Franklin and Hampshire Counties, and the North Quabbin region in western Massachusetts. We work toward a community that celebrates our shared humanity as well as our diversity, a community that invests in having healthy food and safe, warm, and affordable housing for all; excellent and affordable early education and care; living wage work; and high quality education for everyone, regardless of economic or social position.
