Rainbow Resource Centre: http://www.rainbowresourcecentre.org/; can trace its history back to the early 70’s. It began as a student group at the University of Manitoba, first known as the Campus Gay Club, with a name change in 1973 to Gays for Equality. A telephone information line, peer counselling service and a resource library on the University of Manitoba campus were a few of the first services offered. Gays for Equality went on to become a leader and an important resource for the gay and lesbian community, providing community services, education, outreach and political awareness and activism.

211 MAnitoba: http://mb.211.ca/;is a searchable online database of government, health, and social services that are available across the province. The service helps Manitobans who are looking to find the right community or social resource but don’t know where to start. 211 Manitoba also makes it easy for service providers and first responders to direct others to the right resource.
Services are grouped together into categories that include food and clothing, housing and homelessness, health, mental health, employment, newcomers, children and parenting, and youth.
At this time, 211 Manitoba is available online only. Our goal is to move to full-service 211 which we anticipate including phone, text, and/or chat capacity.
