Dial 211 for Health and Human Services
United Way of Maine, in collaboration with Ingraham, Inc. of Portland, have established 2-1-1 Maine, Inc. as part of a national movement to centralize and streamline access to health and human service information and resources.
In July 2000, the Federal Communications Commission approved the use of the telephone number "211" nationally for health and human services information and referral. In short, 2-1-1 Maine, Inc. is a 501 (c) (3) organization whose mission is to connect anyone in Maine who wants to give help or get help with a full range of health and human services in their community. Governor Baldacci announced the expansion of 2-1-1 Maine to statewide coverage on the 6th of July and it is now available to residents of the entire state simply by dialing "211" on the landline or cellular phone. Seven Resource Coordinators throughout the state are responsible for making contact with health and human service resources to ensure that information about those resources are included in the 211 database.
Resource information is available on the internet at www.211maine.org. Clicking on the red 211 Directory button, and entering the resource name.
