What is NC 2-1-1?
NC 2-1-1 is a referral service provided by the United Way that gives callers information in all 100 North Carolina counties. They are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year and your call is free and confidential. They are available in most languages and will refer you to a program or organization that is local to you.
As part of the State Emergency Response Team, they are also available during natural or public disasters to help residents with everything from real-time communication to evacuating to meals and post-disaster cleanup.
If you’re a resident of North Carolina and are in need of assistance, but aren’t sure where to start, give NC 2-1-1 a call. Simply dial 2-1-1 from a landline, cell phone, or VOIP. They have Spanish speaking call specialists and professional language interpretation services in 170 languages.
