Pennsylvania Resource

I found a PA Health and Huamn Services Resource Guide in PDF format that I thought might be helpful to folks.  Here’s a link to a place you can view and/or download the file … https://share.acrobat.com/adc/document.do?docid=afc2b78a-407b-4745-8111-df9c8a7c65b7

the guide covers all sorts of things from Arthritis to Autism to Public Welfare to School Lunches … there’s a lot packed into this file I think it’s only a 16 page file, but worth having a copy of to give folks some starting points if they need help.
