National 2-1-1 Day

Congratulations 2-1-1!  Today, 2/11, is national 2-1-1 day in honor of the call and resource specialists, and the many community organizations which work so hard to connect needs and assets in communities across the United States and beyond.

In fact, more than 260 million people across America can reach information about health and human services in their community by simply dialing 2-1-1.  This is more than 85% of the population in the United States.

While services vary from community to community, 2-1-1 offers callers information and referrals to human service organizations for every day needs and in times of crisis. VisionLink is proud that its CommunityOS platform supports 2-1-1 operations across the United States. One of our larger projects right now is helping the State of Texas unify 25 call centers across the State, a network that responds to nearly 3,000,000 calls every year.

Learn more about the nationwide status of 2-1-1.

Well done, 2-1-1.  Be proud of the work you do every day, nearly everywhere across America.
