“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.

What to Bring When You Visit HelpLink
You should bring any eviction notices, shut off notices, DHS number, and a list of other agencies that you have been working with.
Our Township greatly benefits from Network Northwest's experience, depth of knowledge and understanding. Because they work with so many diverse communities in our ten-county region they understand the local land-use issues and are already working on solutions by the time we realize we need some help.Susan Odom, Chair, Suttons Bay Township Planning Commission
