United Way of Northeast Georgia’s 211 connects families with the community-based resources they need to thrive – resources that can put food on tables, sharpen and edit resumes, keep lights on or even provide clothes after a house fire so families can keep moving forward.

Those who reach out to 211 are connected to trained, bilingual Community Connection Specialists who provide information on services and referrals to programs aligned with the individual’s specific needs.

More than 200 programs, faith-based institutions and other organizations are listed in the 211 database. 80% of callers were connected to a resource able to meet their need last year.

United Way’s 211 is free, confidential and available 365 days a year in 140 different languages serving Banks, Barrow, Clarke, Elbert, Franklin, Greene, Hart, Jackson, Madison, Morgan, Newton, Oconee, Oglethorpe, Stephens, and Walton County.
