The Helpful Numbers for Seniors (HNFS) booklet is a resource directory for seniors containing information for food/nutrition, housing, medical and safety resources throughout San Bernardino County. Each resource’s contact information and description of services are reviewed and revised yearly to ensure published information is accurate. DAAS-PG, which doubles as the Area Agency on Aging, supplies the booklet to its regional offices, offices of the County’s Board of Supervisors and other County departments for distribution to the public. The booklet is also provided at various outreach events throughout the county. The HNFS booklet is an asset for a vulnerable population faced with the fragmentation and scarcity of badly-needed resources.
