SPREAD THE WORD ABOUT 2-1-1

United Way's 2-1-1 helpline is a free, confidential service connecting people in need to resources

IT’S MORE THAN A HELPLINE. IT’S A LIFELINE.

Nearly half of households in Southeastern Michigan struggle to meet their basic needs —including 165,000 families with children. Often, these families are one dentist bill or flat tire away from real financial crisis.

Thankfully, when crisis strikes, 2-1-1 is there.

United Way 2-1-1 is a free, confidential, 24/7 helpline that connects people with resources to get them on the road to stability. But it only works if people know it exists.

Every year, more than 100,000 people reach out to 2-1-1 for help. But we know there are so many more who struggle to pay their bills or put food on the table.

We need YOUR help to spread the word about this vital community service.
