Find Support

If you are experiencing homelessness and need help, the first call you should make is 2-1-1.

If you are homeless or know someone experiencing homelessness, dial 2-1-1 or 888-421-1266. Contacting 2-1-1 or texting your zip code to 898-211 provides connection to resources and services in one’s local area, such as:

  • Basic human needs resources: food banks, clothing, shelters, rent assistance, utility assistance
  • Government information: City, County, State services and programs. Many people are not sure what government office to contact and so 211 helps point them in the right direction.
  • Health and mental health resources: health insurance programs, maternal health, medical information lines, crisis intervention services, support groups, counseling, drug and alcohol intervention and rehabilitation
  • Employment support: financial assistance, job training, transportation assistance, education programs
  • Support for older adults and persons with disabilities: adult day care, congregate meals, Meals on Wheels, respite care, home health care, transportation, homemaker services
  • Support for children, youth and families: child care, after-school programs, Head Start, family resource centers, summer camps and recreation programs, mentoring, tutoring, protective services
  • Volunteer opportunities and donations: community involvement, volunteer centers, disaster relief
  • Military and family support: programs that serve veterans and their families, community resources, mental health resources, counseling
  • Hobby groups and civic/service clubs: for people who have similar interests (gardening clubs, square dance groups, astronomy clubs, etc.) or are united by a common cause (political groups, Lions, Rotary Clubs, Kiwanis, etc.)
  • 2-1-1 also provides incident specific information in coordination with local emergency services during times of disaster, including road closures and shelters.
