2-1-1 is a free accessible telephone number that will enable everyone to access the vital community services they need. 2-1-1 provides a “one-stop” service for vital information by providing the “right” phone number for the “right” resource needed. It is the equivalent of 9-1-1, but for non-emergency health and human services.
Benefits of 2-1-1
This system has been developed to help members of our communities find the information and referral services they need or the appropriate agency to need those needs. It helps provide unity by linking together those seeking essential services with the right organization. 2-1-1 eliminates the need to navigate the complicated web of health and human services by providing one simple number to link community services to the people who need them.
