Specifically, these are private nonprofit and public (government) agencies that provide direct services to the public. (The database does not contain information on for-profit businesses or private practitioners.) These organizations fall into the following service categories:

Fairly extensive descriptions exist for the above organizations - not just addresses and telephone numbers, but also the names of executive directors, eligibility requirements for service, fees, access by public transportation, wheelchair accessibility into the building, target populations, languages other than English spoken by agency staff and a narrative description of the services.

Other organizations in the file include hobby clubs, political organizations, social, service, and fraternal groups, and environmental organizations in San Mateo and Santa Clara counties, with some overlap into other Bay Area counties.
