Our website gives you access to our online database. You may want to look up resources for yourself, and you can!
CLICK HERE to access the United Way 2-1-1 database of social services.
You can also access our online database directly by going to: www.findhelp211.org
Be mindful that our database does not produce results like you may be used to when using a popular search engine, like Google. It is not as intuitive because we have a taxonomy and specific standards that we follow when entering services.
The first thing you will want to do is use your zip code or city to search. Because we cover nearly half the state, you must narrow down resources that provide service to your specific area.
