PI: Eric D. Wish, Ph.D.

Abstract:  The Maryland Community Services Locator (MDCSL) website is a statewide, interactive online directory developed to assist professionals and community members in locating community services, including health, social service, and criminal justice programs. It allows users to get organizational contact information and other details, map resources by location, and get instant directions to local programs. Since its launch, this website has expanded to include approximately 9,000 services and programs that are periodically verified for accuracy by MDCSL staff. The MSCSL offers resources and services such as substance abuse treatment and prevention, housing programs, job readiness/adult education programs, health services, support groups, victim services, and more.
