#4HELP INCLUSION /EXCLUSION CRITERIA

 

The purpose of the #4Help database is to provide a comprehensive listing of health and human service resources covering all 50 States. We rather mistakenly include a service than miss out on including a service that others might exclude - but actually provides a service truly intended to benefit the lives of individuals and families.

  

We collect and classify programs and services that help to enhance the quality of individual, family and/or community life using categories, subcategories and keywords. No service that provides similar services will receive preference over another. We will not knowingly accept advertisements or donations from anyone or any company affiliated with a hotline or helpline services.

We run a truly unbiased service as we believe that benefits the people that we serve much more so than having an allegiance to an entity that controls our agency in any manner.

 

The information contained on this page provides our full inclusion/exclusion policy.  

Inclusions:
