Living in a small community resources are limited to professionals working with families. Therefore, it is necessary to have full access to the available resources located in such areas. Living in rural areas this tends to be a problem; persons typically depend on local telephone books, which are published every two years. If a community is fortunate a resource guide might become available; again these do become obsolete and are not cost efficient in producing yearly.

How can communities produce a community reference guide that can be cost efficient to update and accessible to all professionals? This Project will explore the new possibilities for such a reference guide using modern technology to eliminate the cost factor. To develop a community wide web site that would include listings of all the local agencies along with the services they provide. Through the use of the Internet it is possible to find a free publisher to produce such a site and updating is much more cost efficient. The majority of professionals do have access to the Internet, allowing them access to the site; there is also free use of the Internet at local libraries.
