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 over 1.2 million calls and 545,000 web visits in 2014. Ohio United Way and its members continue to push for the expansion of 2-1-1 into the counties without service.
