    2-1-1

    Getting free information about support services for older adults, housing, transportation and other topics is as easy as dialing 2-1-1. That's the toll-free telephone number that connects people with community organizations and government agencies across Texas.

    Just as 9-1-1 became an easy way to reach emergency medical, police and fire services, 2-1-1 is revolutionizing the way Texans get information about important non-emergency services. (This information and referral service also can be reached by dialing 817-258-8100.)

    Highly-trained information and referral specialists housed at Tarrant County United Way assist callers in an eight-county area. This confidential and nationally-accredited service is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

    The information specialists help callers find answers to questions about issues such as

    • Caregiver Support
    • Child Care
    • Financial Assistance
    • Food
    • Health Services
    • Housing
    • In-Home Services
    • Legal Assistance
    • Transportation
