PA Selects A Vendor for Its Resource & Referral Tool

The Department of Human Services (DHS) recently announced the selection of a vendor for the Resource Information and Services Enterprise (RISE PA), the upcoming statewide resource and referral tool.  When fully implemented, anyone in Pennsylvania will be able to access this tool from their devices to find information about services and resources and self-refer to participating social services agencies.  RISE PA will also allow service providers to assess the needs of individuals.  Providers may refer their clients to agencies and be notified of the outcome of their referrals through the system.  RISE PA will allow participating providers from local non-profits, health care organizations, local government, and faith-based organizations to work together and coordinate care, making it easier for families and individuals to access the help they need. 

Secretary Miller and other DHS and state officials are hosting an informational webinar. Webinars are regional and require registration. You can sign up for the webinar designated for your county.
