Get Connected to Help. Call 211
Tomorrow is February 11, which is "211 Day" in Lake County.
211 is a free, confidential one-stop resource that connects those in need to people that can help. All year long, trained expert navigators at Lake County’s 211 connect people to locally available resources, including help with rent, food, utility bills, employment and job training, childcare and after-school programs, legal services, health and mental health assistance, and so much more. 211 representatives will provide an overview of the program to the Mayor and Village Board at the February 21 Village Board meeting.
The service works by calling 2-1-1 or texting your zip code to 898211 to speak with a real person who can help. Trained expert navigators are standing by to guide you to the help you need. 211 is available 24 hours a day, every day of the year in more than 150 languages.
211 is a free service open to everyone in Lake County and operated by United Way. Lake County government is a key community partner committed to raising awareness of 211 and has provided financial support to ensure this service is available and can be used by Lake County residents and visitors for years to come.
Tell your friends and family about this free service so they know that help is only one phone call or text away. For more information about 211, visit 211LakeCounty.org
