2-1-1 LAUNCHES IN CHESTER COUNTY
Dear Community Member,
Every hour of every day, someone in our community - regardless of income - needs resources the health and human services community can provide. They need help finding quality childcare, job-training or in-home health support for an aging family member. Or maybe they need help feeding their families or keeping them safe.
We know that navigating the nonprofit landscape and a host of government services can be overwhelming if you don't know where to start, and unfortunately many go without the services they need. So this week, United Ways throughout southeastern Pennsylvania joined forces to launch 2-1-1, a free, confidential, easy-to-remember phone number that connects residents of the five-county Greater Philadelphia area with thousands of nonprofit services and programs in their local communities.
2-1-1 will be there to help residents with everyday needs and in times of crisis. Trained specialists will help identify a caller's needs and connect them to local organizations that specialize in meeting basic human needs (food pantries, emergency shelter, etc.); programs and services for children, youth and families; employment supports; resources for older adults; physical and mental health resources.
Help is available by phone seven days a week from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. (TTY/TTD service is available and cann accomodate 170 languages and dialects). Residents can also visit www.211sepa.org 24 hours a day.
2-1-1 is the right place to start when you need help improving the quality of your life or someone you care about.
