2-1-1 PLUS (Partnership Links Unity Support)

2-1-1 PLUS is an outreach program designed to complement the 2-1-1 service provided by the Brown County United Way and its partners.

2-1-12-1-1 PLUS sites have been strategically selected with the idea of reaching out to the populations that may be most likely to benefit from 2-1-1, but who do not have the means to access it. Through this system, locations throughout the community offer access to the Brown County United Way 2-1-1 service via phone, internet or both. These sites are crucial to the success of 2-1-1 because they enhance the ability of the system to reach out and help those who are in the greatest need of services.

PLUS sites are especially useful for community residents who do not have access to a phone or computer, or do not feel comfortable accessing the 2-1-1 database from home or at work. The Brown County United Way 2-1-1 PLUS service is the first of its kind in the nation.

Who are PLUS Sites?
PLUS sites are a coalition of local service providers and private businesses that believe it is necessary to work together to strengthen our communities. PLUS sites are available to people from all walks of life and offer volunteers who speak many languages. PLUS sites do not turn anyone away from the help they ask for and strive to provide clients with the best information possible. PLUS sites include:

  • Resource Centers
  • Local Schools
  • Day Cares
  • Local Non-Profits
  • Government Offices
When are PLUS Sites open?
Hours of operation for PLUS sites will be a business’s or service provider’s normal business hours.
Why become a PLUS Site?
Being a PLUS site will allow you to better help members of the community. Too often people ask for help and the question cannot be answered leaving, clients without any options. PLUS sites allow member agencies to provide needed information in an accurate and timely manner, effectively reducing the amount of misinformation that causes so much confusion.
What is required of PLUS Sites?
All that is required of PLUS sites is the dedication of a private space that offers either telephone or internet access (free of charge) for a client to use to contact the I&R service and an employee who can assist clients if needed.
