Why 2-1-1?
Economic and demographic trends in our community have significantly increased the demand for social services. While many local organizations provide a wide range of services, until 2-1-1 there was no central mechanism connecting these organizations to the people who need them.

2-1-1 is an advanced Information and Referral (I&R) service. In addition to offering an efficient and effective means of connecting residents to available resources, 2-1-1 has proven invaluable during times of disaster such as the aftermath following Hurricane Katrina and September 11, 2001.

2-1-1: Get Connected, Get Answers accredited contact center and website are available to all segments of the Brown, Door and Kewaunee County communities as a free and confidential service.
