Triangle United Way Introduces 211 Service

Posted August 8, 2001 3:11 a.m. EDT

— The Triangle United Way is making it easier to find health and human services in local communities.

On Wednesday, the organization introduced a new three digit number — 211 — that people can call for information and referrals to social service programs.

Callers in the Chatham, Durham, Orange, and Wake counties can just dial 211 any time of the day, any day of the week to learn about everything from child care to adult day care.

Trained, professional caseworks have access to more than 2,200 programs and services.

The call is confidential and free, and bilingual services are provided.
