Attention Veterans in crisis!  Dialing “211” provides individuals and families in need with a shortcut through what can be a bewildering maze of health and human service agency phone numbers.  By simply dialing 211, those in need of assistance can be referred, and sometimes connected, to appropriate agencies and community organizations.

Dialing 211 helps direct callers to services for, among others, the elderly, the disabled, those with a personal crisis, homeless and those who are new to their communities.

211 is available to approximately 309 million people, which is 94.6 percent of the total U.S. population. To obtain more information, visit
