Attention Stokes County Organizations!
Stokes County is now a participant in the NC 2-1-1 system. Now is the time to make sure your organization’s information is included and up-to-date. NC 2-1-1 is a non-emergency information and referral service provided by United Way of North Carolina. Accessible via an easy-to-remember, three-digit number, families and individuals can call to obtain free and confidential information on health and human services and resources within their community, including information pertaining to drug treatment, suicide prevention, food, utilities, etc.
Health, human services and governmental agencies are the primary resources in NC 2-1-1. The “Basic Needs” category gets the most inquiries and referrals and is therefore given extra focus. Basic Needs includes food, shelter, utilities and transportation. Information on health and mental health, including substance abuse, services are also emphasized.
NC 2-1-1 is excited to collaborate with Stokes County through Stokes Partnership for Children to ensure that Stokes County has the best up-to-date resource information available. To do this, NC 2-1-1 is undertaking a resource e-mail blast that will contact all agencies currently in the NC 2-1-1 system. Please be on the lookout for an email in the next week or so. In addition, please feel free to share information on any agencies in Stokes County that you think would be a vital contact for anyone seeking health and human service assistance in Stokes. The NC 2-1-1 Data Coordinator for Stokes County is April Walsh. She can assist you with adding or updating your organization. She can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 336-207-7095. To view the NC 2-1-1 system go here: http://www.unitedwaync.org/nc211. Be sure to contact April if you do not receive an email.
