2-1-1 Texas Community Resource Training
Community Resource Training
Did you know that February 11 is National 2-1-1 Day? What better way to celebrate than to join service providers across North Central Texas and learn how to access the most up to date resources serving the metroplex. Although Beverly Sills stated, “There are no shortcuts to any place worth going”, we’ll show you short cuts and other tips on how to find resources for the individuals and families you serve.
Mark your calendars and plan to join us on February 11, 2019 from 9:30am-11:30 am for an interactive morning in the Transportation Room at the North Central Texas Council of Governments, 616 Six Flags Dr. Arlington TX 76011. Please register on Eventbrite so we can accommodate all those that plan to attend.
Every day thousands of people across North Central Texas turn to 2-1-1 for information and support—whether financial, domestic, health or disaster-related. 2-1-1 is a free, confidential referral and information helpline and website that connects people from all communities and of all ages to the essential health and human services they need, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Whether in times of natural disaster or personal crisis, 2-1-1 is committed to be the first, most essential resource to anyone who needs help.
Call 2-1-1 and speak with a trained service professional in your area from any cell phone or landline or search for services at www.211texas.org.
You’ll find information about:
services like supplemental food and nutrition programs
shelter and housing options and utilities assistance
emergency information and disaster relief
employment and education opportunities
services for veterans
health care, vaccination and health epidemic information
addiction prevention and rehabilitation programs
reentry services for ex-offenders
support for individuals with mental illnesses or special needs
a safe, confidential path out of physical and/or emotional domestic abuse
“At this very moment, there are people only you can reach…and differences only you can make.” –Mike Dooley
We are looking forward to spending the morning of February 11th, 2019 with you!
