Happy 211 Day!

Every day, millions of people across the country face complex challenges in their lives. And many of them have no idea where to turn for help.

Fortunately, 211 is there—providing expert, caring help in real time. Available 24/7, this vital service is a phone number, text-messaging service and website that connects people with resources in their local area to address their needs.

The trained 211 specialists—the real people answering questions—don’t just “patch people through” to simple solutions; they listen, identify underlying problems, and connect people in need with resources and services in our community that improve their lives.

211 is for everyone—no matter our income, race, gender, or family status. Because all of us face challenges in our lives at some point, we’re lucky to have somewhere to turn when things take a turn for the worse.
