There are over 16,000 nonprofit, state, faith-based and community organizations in Alabama that provide a number of specialized services. Studies show, people often don’t know where to start and find it frustrating and confusing to navigate through this ever-growing maze and often give up. During these tough times, Wiregrass United Way 2-1-1 is a local program that eliminates barriers and connects people to readily available services.

Need help to make ends meet? Want to give back to your community by volunteering? Do you have things you would like to donate to those less fortunate? Dialing 2-1-1 connects you to a trained operator that has access to a comprehensive database of services in your community. By its design, the 2-1-1 system is ideally suited for serving as the single entry point for any variety of programs and for being the single contact point for information. 2-1-1 serves families from all walks of life, but most importantly benefits our most vulnerable populations such as the elderly, people with disabilities, and low-income by providing advocacy and making access to services easier. 2-1-1 is the only comprehensive information and referral system in the Wiregrass. Simply dial 2-1-1 toll free for a live operator 24/7. If dialing 2-1-1 does not work on your phone, dial 1-888-421-1266 toll free for assistance. This service is completely free and for everyone.

Wiregrass United Way 2-1-1 partners with over 800 different agencies and programs that provide health and human services assistance to residents in seven Wiregrass counties: Barbour, Coffee, Covington, Dale, Geneva, Henry, and Houston.
