Nonprofits like United Way and various government agencies provide excellent programs to support people in need. The problem: The people who need these programs often don’t know they exist.
2-1-1 is a free telephone hotline assisting people to get the help they need, including a wide range of human services. 211 is like 911 but for nonlife threatening needs, and can include a wide range of assistance – for example: shelter, drug addiction, child care, mental health, senior services, healthy youth services, summer camps, health care, just to name a very few.
