NEW BRUNSWICK – Need a little help locating food, substance abuse resources, job training, veterans services, housing or caregiving? Middlesex County is making it much easier to locate these and other services with the introduction of its new online Services Locator.
This state-of-the-art database of services and programs is available on the County website at www.middlesexcountynj.gov.
“Sometimes, we don’t know where to begin when searching for adult care, social services programs or emergency assistance. Our Services Locator tailors your search to the needs of you and your family, so you can focus on your priorities,” said Freeholder Blanquita B. Valenti, Chair of the County’s Community Services Committee.
Using map-based technology, you can enter your Zip code and create a fully personalized search for the exact services you need. You can even narrow results beyond your location to find services that fit your budget, family needs and schedule.
While the Services Locator is tailored to Middlesex County users, it is built on the Aunt Bertha platform, enabling users to search for services in other parts of the state and country. Aunt Bertha is the largest resource engine of its type in the United States, with program listings in every Zip code.
“The Services Locator represents another way the County uses technology to make life easier for our residents,” said Freeholder Director Ronald G. Rios. “Maybe you are new to the area and want to find out about local programs and services. Our Services Locator can help find what you need, using only a few clicks.”
The Middlesex County Services Locator can be accessed by clicking the “Find Services” icon at the top of the homepage of the Middlesex County website at www.middlesexcountynj.gov.
