2-1-1 Resource Line

2-1-1 is a 24/7 non-emergency resource line that connects people to available community resources, from food and housing to employment, transportation, healthcare and more.

Beginning each January and continuing through the end of tax season, our resource line can also be used to schedule appointments for United Way’s Free File free income tax assistance program.


  Call 2-1-1 (or 1-866-892-9211) to speak with an operator for free, confidential information on local resources such as food, housing, employment, health care, counseling and more. 2-1-1 is also the number to dial to schedule your Free File income tax appointment.
