“Connecting People in Need to Resources in the Traverse Bay Region”




HelpLink is a network of volunteer Navigators who connect people to resources in the five county area: Antrim, Benzie, Grand Traverse, Kalkaska, and Leelanau. Many people in crisis do not know the scope of available options or how to make arrangements for assistance. Navigators are trained to guide neighbors in need in identifying needs, suggesting options, and expediting help.


HelpLink is a free service that connects people who have family or personal needs to a range of options for assistance. 

There is no need to make an appointment. HelpLink is operated on a first come first serve basis during office hours.
