Most people would consider an emergency a physical or mental ailment that requires immediate attention. What happens if the emergency can't be solved by a trip to the Emergency Room or a call to your doctor? That's where 2-1-1 can come into play. 211 is a service that can be accessed across America at no cost to the person or people asking for help. It can be dialed by telephone, toll-free, where a trained operator will assist in connecting people to services, and it can also be used online, at www.211kansas.org (locally) or www.211.org (nationally). If you have a need, 211 will help you find resources. Childcare, paying your bills, financial literacy and counseling, discounted and free youth programming, food assistance, shelter, and counseling are just a few of the many services that can be found through 211.
