United Way's 2-1-1 is a source of information and referral for people looking for community services and resources, especially for those who need essential services, such as food, shelter, counseling, employment assistance, and more.
Every hour of every day, someone is looking for help with essential services. With a complex network of agencies, many people go without help because they don’t know where to start. Instead, they can dial 2-1-1 for free, confidential, 24-hour information on the community, health and social services. Callers receive personalized information from a live resource specialist. Additionally, 2-1-1 is able to track those calls and report where the needs are the greatest - and where there are gaps in services.
