2-1-1 (Dial Phone #211) is an easy to remember telephone number that where available connects people with important community services and volunteer opportunities. The implementation of 211 is being spearheaded by United Way and other referral agencies in states and local communities. United Way of America (UWA) and the Alliance for Information and Referral Systems (AIRS) strongly support Federal funding so that every American has access to this essential service.
