Navigating health care and general assistance systems of any area can be difficult. Trying to find services for all ages makes it even more difficult.Finding services in Wakulla County can be nearly impossible. So, how do you find doctors, financial assistance, childcare, parent education or tax help?
Come to the Wakulla County Health Department! The department now has a Service Provider Kiosk to help you find who and what you are looking for. The kiosk is located in the lobby of the health department, which is open Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. The touch-screen computer is very easy to use and understand.
You can search sites such as 211Big Bend, Whole Child Leon, Florida Department of Children and Families and Wakulla County Coalition for Youth Resource Directory. Many providers are local and have sliding scales for those families in crisis.
You can find all types of services from daily needs to emergency assistance. This service is also very helpful in the event that you have just moved into the area. The kiosk and electronic referral system were made possible through a grant sponsored by the Blue Foundation of Florida.
Please feel free to come by the Wakulla Health Department, at 48 Oak Street, Crawfordville, and explore the world of electronic referrals. Help is always available!
