A Phone Call Away …

Seldom a week goes by that I don’t hear from someone with a question about where to get social services help.  In Texas – as in many other states – we are blessed to have a public/private service called 2-1-1 Texas that I am proud to promote.

2-1-1 Texas is a partnership between the Texas Health and Human Services Commission, United Ways of Texas, various local United Way organizations, the Texas Information and Referral Network, and numerous other important entities in the business of helping others.  2-1-1 is a telephone line that you can dial from anywhere in Texas.  After placing that call, you will then access a professionally-trained individual who can direct to you non-emergency health and human services assistance programs, whether you are trying to collect overdue child support payments; searching for safety and shelter in preparation for natural disasters; looking for a particular federal, state or municipal office; needing to find a church or synagogue with food for the needy; etc. 

Given this tough economy, perhaps there is a 2-1-1 service in your area.  Check it out.  Information and help may only be a phone call away …

Whatever your needs, best wishes always – Melody
