2-1-1 Helpline

The Lifeline to Essential Community Services

2-1-1 serves as a lifeline to individuals and families in need. Our operators are available around the clock, 365 days a year, and offer assistance in multiple languages. They can help connect residents to everything from basic emergency services (like housing and food), to job training assistance, translation services, mental health services, and so much more. 

Visit the 2-1-1 website for more information, or call 2-1-1 directly. (A toll-free option is also available: 1-866-559-4211).

If you are a community partner: 

We want to keep the community well informed of services available when contacting our 211 Center. Please send updates to 211fresno@icfs.org and let us know:

· Your current hours of operation

· Services currently provided (i.e. confirmation of services you are continuing to provide, services that are currently suspended, changes to existing programs)

· Ways to access your services, given Shelter in Place

If your agency provides food/meal deliveries or services for vulnerable populations, please let us know. Thank you for your help!
