My “Help” card is targeted for use in and around Broomfield County, Colo., but the card itself is easily adaptable to other contexts. I know because that’s how I created the “Help” card in the first place! I adapted it from the business-sized resource card in use in 2011 by Boulder County Cares and various agencies in neighboring Boulder County.

If your area doesn’t have a card like this in use, email me for the original Microsoft Publisher version to use as a template. Work with local social service agencies to make sure you’re including useful and accurate information on your card. And voilà — you have a customized, local “Help” card to keep handy in case you meet someone in need! Keep in mind that you’ll need to periodically double check the information on your card to make sure it’s still accurate.
