About 2-1-1

Simply put, United Way of Greater Atlanta’s 2-1-1 Contact Center connects families with the community-based resources they need to thrive – resources that can put food on tables, sharpen and edit resumes, keep lights on or even provide clothes after a house fire. This help is provided so that families can keep moving forward.

Those who reach out to 2-1-1 are connected to trained, bilingual Community Connection Specialists who provide information on services and referrals to programs aligned with the individual’s specific needs.

More than 3,500 programs, faith-based institutions and other organizations are listed in the 2-1-1 database. Those resources provide an average of over 46,000 people a month with the help they needed last year.

United Way’s 2-1-1 is free, confidential and available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, in 140 different languages.
