Find Assistance for You or Your Loved One

Your Place for Information Your Place For Information 
The Librarians at Grosse Pointe Public Library have researched and created a database of nationwide services that may assist you as you deal with the challenges that come with health issues.

From Cancer to Diabetes, Autism to Alzheimer's, we can search for help in many forms such as, assistance with transportation costs, support groups, household expenses, medical equipment and much more.

While we cannot offer medical advice, we can sit down with you and look for organizations that may give you assistance in other areas.

In these times, demand is great and organizations are few, but our Librarians are experts in researching groups that assist financially and otherwise with medical and health issues.

Please call us. We will research any area, at no cost.
