Why 2-1-1?

Economic and demographic trends in Brown County 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.

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.
