United Way of Central Massachusetts

2-1-1

Just as you would call 9-1-1 in an emergency, United Way of Central Massachusetts has partnered with other United Way’s across the state, to establish Mass 2-1-1 to help with non-life threatening needs. 2-1-1 is an easy to remember telephone number that connects callers to information about health and human services available in their community. It serves as a resource for finding government benefits and services, non-profit organizations, support groups, volunteer opportunities, donation programs, and other local resources. Calling 2-1-1 is:

  • Free
  • Confidential
  • Available 24 hours-a-day / 7 days-a-week
  • Multi-lingual
  • Available immediately during times of crisis, to field calls regarding the event and to direct callers to services most appropriate for their needs
  • Is an easy way to find or give help in your community
  • Maintains the integrity of the 9-1-1 system saving that vital community resource for life and death emergencies
  • "I LIVE UNITED...

    by volunteering with area youth, encouraging young leaders to set goals and achieve dreams.”
