We’ve been eagerly waiting for United Way’s big summer presentation of 2-1-1, a phone help line that is designed to help people find resources and referrals in their time of need. The idea is incredible – imagine having all the information you need to get through your crisis, just by dialing three little numbers. You can ask for resources listed by organization or by topic/need. You can also have information sent to you in a text from the help line, so you will have it on hand for the future.
If you’re unable to get through to 2-1-1 from your cell phone, call United Way in Rockford so they can address the technical issue with your phone company or with 2-1-1 directly.
