February 11th is National 2-1-1 Day, when we celebrate and raise awareness about United Way 2-1-1, our region’s navigation center. 2-1-1 has been critical to strengthening our community by providing free, fast, and confidential assistance. It has helped our neighbors get access to things such as housing, food, healthcare, transportation, and so much more. Last year 2-1-1 received a total of 170,533 requests for help, connecting our neighbors to vital resources and programs. Here’s a glimpse at some of the other impacts of our local 2-1-1 in the past year:
