What is 2-1-1?

* 2-1-1 is an easy to remember telephone number that connects callers to information about critical health and human services available in their community.
* 2-1-1 reaches approximately 107 million people (over 37% of the total U.S. population) in 30 states and the District of Columbia. Yet, millions of Americans still need to be connected.
* America needs 2-1-1 to be accessible nationwide. As the number of organizations providing specialized services is on the rise, people find it frustrating and confusing to access community services. 2-1-1 provides a one-stop service for vital information.
* While services that are offered through 2-1-1 vary from community to community, 2-1-1 provides callers with information about and referrals to human services for every day needs and in times of crisis. For example, 2-1-1 can offer access to the following types of services:

Basic Human Needs Resource: food banks, clothing, shelters, rent assistance, utility assistance.
