Currently available in 80% of the country, 2-1-1 is an easy-to-remember number that helps people cut through what can be a confusing and overwhelming maze of information and resources. 2-1-1 helps people assess their needs and links them directly to the resources that will help. Whether a person is contemplating starting a small business, looking for volunteer opportunities in his/her community or seeking information on essential services, 2-1-1 is there to help.
We need your help to ensure federal 2-1-1 legislation passes this year. While the bill (H.R. 211 in the House, S. 211 in the Senate) enjoys significant bi-partisan support, members of Congress need to hear from you, their constituents, in order to ensure the bill is considered and passed. Your voice will truly make a difference.
