Count on 211 for connections to health services and more.
United Way of North Central Iowa is always here for the people in our community. The current COVID-19 outbreak is no different. Together with 211, we are helping people connect to critical health services and more.
As people feel the health, education and financial impacts of the coronavirus, 211 is here to help. With one toll-free call, text or online request to 211, anyone in need can get free and confidential connections to:
- Health care
- Emergency counseling
- Disaster assistance
- Food programs
- Stable housing
- Employment and education opportunities
- Childcare and family services
- And more
211 resource specialists are available 24/7/365 and across the network, they speak more than 180 languages.
And, unlike programs that simply “patch people through” to agencies, the caring experts on the other end of the 211 line listen, identify underlying problems, and connect people with the resources and services that can provide support.
To keep this vital free service going we need support from generous donors in our community. A gift to United Way of North Central Iowa, helps support the 211 system that connects so many to the resources and services they need during this crisis and year-round. Please consider giving today to support people in our community.
