The CRG was the result of over two years of collaboration between IIKD and the PoL to create a user-friendly and comprehensive list of the organizations, institutions, and businesses that serve children, families, and elders throughout the Laguna area.

The guide includes a broad range of resources from social services, health, law enforcement, public safety, education, environment, government, and the local business community.

Community Health Representatives will distribute the CRG to 1,400+ households across Laguna’s seven villages and will assist community members in using the guide.

The PoL hopes to use the guide as a starting point for developing a smart phone app. Design and publication of the CRG was co-funded by Molina Healthcare of New Mexico, Inc. and IIKD.
