United Way 2-1-1

You are here

There’s 411 and 911, but you can text or call 211

when you need help and don’t know where to turn.


211 is a contact center connecting people with available resources like food, housing, health care, senior services, child care, legal aid,
volunteer opportunities, and much more.

Instead of multiple calls leading to dead ends, with one text message or call to 211, people can reach a trained specialist who will assess the full scope of their needs and match them to the right services. 211 also assists during times of disaster, providing critical information about evacuation routes, food, and shelter.

Need help? Start here.

Text your 5-digit zip code to 898211 or dial 2-1-1*.

Central Kentucky, please dial 866-362-6211.
