The need to connect individuals and families throughout Ohio with health and human services resource information has never been greater.
2-1-1 is an easy to remember 3-digit dialing code, available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days each year, which connects callers to a trained specialist. Using a robust database, callers are provided with information regarding local programs and community based organizations, Ohio Benefit Bank services, faith-based initiatives and government agency services. The service is free to the caller.
United Ways across Ohio provide over 50% of the costs to operate the system's call centers, which handled 1.5 million calls in 2013. Ohio United Way and its members continue to push for the expansion of 2-1-1 into the counties without service.
