  • 2-1-1 Texas delivers efficient access to the most appropriate sources of help and information.

     

    Anywhere in Texas, anyone can call 2-1-1 for free information and referrals to health and human services agencies, nonprofit and faith-based organizations, disaster relief resources, and volunteer opportunities.

     

    The 2-1-1 helpline in Dallas maintains a comprehensive community resource database of services which provide assistance with health care, employment, educational, legal, housing, counseling, transportation needs, and much more. (www.211texas.org)

     

    An area plan is prepared annually to outline service needs and strategies for service provision. A 25-member advisory council, made up of consumers, service providers, health care providers, and elected officials provides advice and assistance to staff in administration of the area plan.
