Support 2-1-1 Arizona

05/01/2019, By Valley of the Sun United Way

 

Thanks to 2-1-1 Arizona, connection to services is just a phone call away. Anyone can dial 2-1-1 and reach the community information and referral services line to help them get connected to a local organization that can help with their situation.

Unfortunately, this line is only available on weekdays from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. But emergencies and other needs happen around the clock.  In partnership with the Alliance of Arizona Nonprofits, we are asking the state legislature to restore state funding to have 24/7 access!

By supporting 2-1-1, we are increasing access and use of community and faith-based services, as 82% of referrals under the current hours were to private organizations. Making use of these private programs cuts the cost of public services.

How Can I Help?

Get more information on the benefits of extending 2-1-1 hours and the importance of funding on this 2-1-1 Arizona Funding Action Request PDF. Then, send an email or letter to your Senator and Representatives to share your thoughts!
