North Carolina AIRS



Serving the Information and Referral Specialists of North Carolina since 1983


  NC AIRS is a regional affiliate (chapter) of the Alliance of Information and Referral Systems (AIRS), the only professional association dedicated to the field of information and referral. 

Information and Referral (I&R) is the art, science, and practice of bringing people and services together. When people have questions or need help to find critical services such as financial assistance, food, shelter, child care, jobs, or mental health support, they turn to the members of North Carolina AIRS to receive information on community, social, and health services. Our member agencies create and maintain databases of programs and services and then disseminate that information through a variety of channels including telephone, computer and mobile devices, and in person. The assistance they provide is free, fast, convenient, and courteous.
