Celebrating #211Day

211Day

In 2016, 766 local residents from Oxford County called 2-1-1 looking for assistance.

What is 211?
2-1-1 is a phone and online referral service that helps individuals in our community connect to a complete range of government and community-based health and social services. When you dial 2-1-1, your call is answered by an information specialist who will ask the right questions to find out exactly what services you need.

In 2016 the #1 reason people called 2-1-1 in Oxford County was related to education. Families with ongoing or sudden financial challenges were able to register for  ‘Supplies 4 Students’ to receive support and purchase school supplies with their child(ren) in grades JK to Grade 12.

Help is only a phone call away. #211Day
