Jan. 6: 2-1-1 Service Explored for Tehama County

Every hour of every day, hundreds of people need essential human services – they are looking for training, employment, food pantries, help for an aging parent, addiction prevention programs for their teenage children, affordable housing options, support groups and ways of becoming part of their community.

2-1-1 allows people to give help and get help.

2-1-1 is an easy-to-remember telephone number that, where available, connects people with important community services and volunteer opportunities. In 2008, 2-1-1 services in the United States answered more than 14 million calls. Many of California’s larger counties currently have 2-1-1 services. Efforts are under way to include rural counties with smaller populations in the program.

You are invited to attend a meeting to explore the interest and potential for bringing 2-1-1 to Tehama County.

Susan Wilson will describe efforts in Shasta County to implement 2-1-1. Susan recently attended the State 2-1-1 Summit and will have the latest information on the program. Questions to be addressed include: What is 2-1-1? Would it duplicate existing programs? What would it cost? Should we further pursue the potential for 2-1-1 in Tehama County?
