We’re getting 211 Click to read more
The 211 non-emergency referral service is coming to Central New York in early 2015. Contact will operate 211CNY for five counties through a state grant awarded to United Way of Central New York.

The Federal Communications Commission set aside the 211 dialing code for community information and referral services in July 2000.

It helps the elderly, the disabled, those who don't speak English, people who are having a personal crisis, those with limited reading skills or new to the community to find information about health and human service organizations and agencies.
