Search Tips

Text Search tips:

  • Keep your text phase simple
  • Use as few words as possible
  • Choose descriptive words
  • Check spelling
  • If there are special characters in your search, try using them exactly as is, such as “Crohn’s” or without the special characters, such as “Crohn”
  • Try alternative words: instead of “Elderly Housing” try “Senior Housing”
  • Alternate the singular or plural form of words if you did not find an exact fit: “babies” instead of “baby”
  • If looking for a specific phrase, place in quotes: ex: “Jewish Family Services”

Browsing Events & Organizations:


  • Navigate the Calendar
  • Click on “Event List” at top of the Calendar to see details of upcoming events

TIP: When browsing the Events calendar you choose a specific Category at the top Events search bar, such as “Family” or “Concert”,  you will be shown the calendar with events for just that specific interest.

Organizations & Services:

On the Home Page go to Organization Categories and

  • View All and select the Category to browse through or
  • Click on Major Category to view your options for further browsing

TIP: When you find an Organization of interest, you can click on the Categories and Tags found at the bottom to find similar Organizations.
