People with nowhere else to turn call 2-1-1... offering information on a broad range of services, including rent assistance, food banks, affordable housing, health resources, child care, after-school programs, elderly care, financial literacy, and job training programs.
Please give today so we can begin initiating 2-1-1 in southern Illinois and answer even more calls. Our goal is to have 2-1-1 established in southern Illinois by June 2013.
YOU can put that hope in their lives. You can make it possible for us to answer these calls for help, one person at a time. What a great way to amplify the impact and your caring to our most vulnerable neighbors.
