2-1-1 Out & About

The end of summer is a busy time for us, not only here in the office, but out in the community attending many back-to-school events. 2-1-1 was out and about connecting the community with vital school readiness resources. Our staff and volunteers participated in a variety of these summer events reaching over 1,832 parents and children educating and connecting them with 2-1-1!

Knowing about 2-1-1 information services provided easy access for parents to connect with a broad variety of resources that helped them to plan for their child's back-to-schools needs including:

School supplies, immunizations, school physicals, health insurance for children, voluntary Pre-K, before/after school care, dental exams, health & nutrition information, internet safety for children, school information such as calendars and menus, mentoring and tutoring programs and more.

Our community outreach is just another way for us to get the word out about 2-1-1 not only during the summer, but throughout the entire year! Through our marketing efforts and other outreach activities, we continue to create greater awareness of the value of 2-1-1, and increase the use of 2-1-1 services in the communities we serve.
