Plug for 2-1-1

Friday, April 15, 2011

We all know the value of being able to call 9-1-1 in an emergency. Back before the days of cell phones and Google, we also knew the value being able to call 4-1-1 for information.

But I’m regularly surprised that a large portion of our population does not know about 2-1-1. All 50 states, plus DC and Puerto Rico have 2-1-1 call centers. 2-1-1 is an invaluable referral line for help with food, housing, employment, health care, counseling and other issues.

If you’d rather surf, check out When you’re experiencing a financial or an emotional emergency, 211 is the number to call.
