    Using a location provided by your device or entered manually, ArapaSOURCE can provide a list of nearest resources in eighteen different categories.  Resources listed within ArapaSOURCE provide links to their websites, phone numbers and addresses.

    Please refer to the included help pages within ArapaSOURCE to learn how to use it to its fullest.

    If you opened ArapaSOURCE from a mobile device such as a phone you will be asked to allow ArapaSOURCE to access your location. This will be used to automatically find your location within the app.

    You may use one of two methods to manually find your current location:

    • Click ‘Find Me’ to locate your current position (Note: Your device’s Location Settings must be enabled)

    • Or type your address in the search bar at the top of the map. As you type, matching addresses within the county will appear below your entry. If you see your address in the list, click it to zoom to it. Otherwise, type in the full street address and press Return to locate it.

    You may also tap anywhere on the map. If no location has been set vis GPS and there is no address in the address bar atop the map, the location you tap will become your starting search location.
