Information & Referral Page

Sometimes Atlantis Community, Inc. may not have the resources, programs, or staff necessary to help in a particular situation—whether that’s due to funding constraints, limitations of our Independent Living programs, or a lack of training/knowledge (for example: we do not have anyone on staff qualified to give legal advice or provide legal services). However, that does not mean we cannot still be useful to you! Even when there is nothing we can personally do, we still have the information and networking necessary to connect people with the programs and services that they need out in the community. Whether you’re looking to purchase a new wheelchair or trying to find apartment that is affordable and accessible, Atlantis may be able to help guide you in the right direction.

Check out the database below for information on a variety of resources and organizations that can help many different situations and needs.

Book Trust

Our team is dedicated to closing the literacy gap by inspiring a passion for reading among some of the nation’s neediest children. Book Trust is a non-profit organization whose mission is to empower children from low-income families to choose and own books, inspiring a passion for reading and cultivating increased literacy skills and life-long learning. Access to books and reading materials is the most significant barrier to literacy. In areas of poverty, the ratio of books to children is 1 book for every 300 children, a figure contributing to the literacy gap between low-income and affluent families.
