2-1-1 is a fast, free and confidential way to get help 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. 2-1-1 is not the number you call for emergency needs. Instead, 2-1-1 is a toll free number connecting people with available community resources and volunteer opportunities. By dialing 2-1-1 you will reach a trained, caring professional all the time. They will provide resources for basic human needs, physical and mental health resources, work initiatives, support for seniors and those with disabilities, and support for children, youth and families. You can also call this number to volunteer. Visit the Missouri 2-1-1 Website for more information.
