Help Where You Need It

2-1-1

2-1-1 is a free and confidential information and referral service that helps people face life challenges, often for the first time, by connecting them to the local resources they need. It’s available in over 100 languages, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

2-1-1 saves time and frustration by eliminating the need to navigate a maze of agencies and helplines by organizing all available resources in one location.

  • WHAT DOES 2-1-1 DO FOR THE COMMUNITY?

    Calling 2-1-1 connects people to professionals trained to address diverse needs such as domestic violence, emergency shelter, clothing, legal aid, support groups, transportation, education, financial stability, health... and more.

  • WHY IS THERE A NEED FOR 2-1-1?

    2-1-1 addresses new realities that did not exist in years past. These include fluctuating employment rates, an increase in the number of senior citizens and an increase in the number of working poor.

A coalition of government and philanthropy has joined together to create the One Louisville: COVID-19 Response Fund that will rapidly deploy resources to households, businesses, and community-based organizations (nonprofit organizations) working at the frontlines of the Louisville-area coronavirus outbreak. The Community Foundation of Louisville, in coordination with Metro United Way and fund partners, will oversee funding to community groups.
