NC 2-1-1 is free, confidential, and available 24-hours everyday in any language. Supported by United Ways across our state, NC 2-1-1 is an important service to help our neighbors find help when they need it most. 2-1-1 can provide information to individuals who are facing unemployment, or direct people in need to lesser known resources, taking pressure off front line agencies. In times of natural disasters, 2-1-1 has proven itself invaluable in taking call volume off the 9-1-1 system for assistance needs that are not immediate emergencies.
Celebrate 2-1-1 Day by sharing this information with a friend, colleague, or neighbor.
