You may have called 411 for information or 911 for an emergency, but have you heard of 211? The free 211 telephone service connects callers to comprehensive and specialized information and referral agencies in states and local communities. For example, you can find an after-school program, disaster services, child-care or elder-care services.
In addition to connecting people with important community services, you can also find out about volunteer opportunities. United Way of America (UWA) and the Alliance for Information and Referral Systems (AIRS) support federal funding so that every American has access to 211 service. To find out about getting 211 service in your area, or to get more information, visit www.211.org.
