February 11, 2015: National 2-1-1 Day

Please help us in congratulating 2-1-1!



Today, February 11th, is National 2-1-1 Day and VisionLink would like to be the first to say how proud we are to support 2-1-1s and their mission to provide free and confidential information and referral services to millions of Americans nationwide.

Right now, 2-1-1 operators across the nation are assisting with requests for services including housing, food, health care, and a variety of other services. VisionLink honors all of the call and resource specialists, and community organizations which work diligently to connect needs and resources effectively and efficiently across the United States and beyond. This work happens thousands of times every day, and millions of times a year.

Dr. Douglas Zimmerman, founder and CEO of VisionLink, Inc., will be presenting at the United Way CEO Summit today. The summit brings together the United Way CEO 2-1-1 Workgroup to discuss the work, commitment, and community impacts supported by United Ways and 2-1-1s. Dr. Zimmerman will be speaking about big data and its implications for 2-1-1s.

If you would like more information about 2-1-1s in general, please feel free to contact Lori Warrens, Senior Director of Community Solutions at VisionLink, and a founder of the national 2-1-1 system. Lori has been instrumental in the launch and growth of 2-1-1 and is now helping to pilot similar solutions in other countries. Please contact Lori at Warrens@VisionLink.org.

Happy National 2-1-1 Day for the VisionLink Team! We appreciate the work you do, and are honored to support your work.
