What is 211?
United Way's 211 service is a vital resource that provides free and confidential assistance to individuals in need of support. Operated and funded in part by local United Ways, the 211 service connects individuals with a wide range of services and resources, including housing and utilities payment assistance, health care and insurance assistance, disaster assistance, food assistance, financial education, and credit counseling, job training, employment services, veteran services, childcare and family services, mental health and substance abuse, and senior services. By contacting 211, individuals can speak to a live specialist who can help connect them with the help they need. Additionally, the 211 service allows United Way to identify service gaps, unmet needs, under-served populations, and common determinants that often lead to crisis, helping to inform their efforts to address these issues in the community.
