ResourceLocator Overview

Resource Locator is an application that helps users retrieve information about (and obtain referrals to) service providers. Through the web app, counselors can also provide better service to call-in customers
Hotline counselors, for example, need only enter the caller’s stated location (physical address, zip code only, or right click on map) and enter needs category according to a pre-specified taxonomy. Resource Locator will quickly generate a map with locations of nearby providers (ordered by distance from the client).
ResourceLocator would be an invaluable tool for citizens and responders alike during natural disasters or national emergencies.

Google Chrome is recommended but ResourceLocator also works with Mozilla Firefox. (Due to Google’s development technology, some items are not compatible with Internet Explorer.)

♦ The provider data base is only for Miami (FL) area.
