2-1-1 Helpline Launches in Cook County

211 Metro Chicago is a free resource connecting all Cook County residents with essential health and social services to help them meet their basic needs. Trained, local specialists are available 24/7 to connect individuals with the support they need, such as food, housing, utility assistance, access to health care, and other vital resources.

211 Metro Chicago is a powerful example of cross-sector partnership. 2-1-1 is operated by United Way of Metro Chicago and launched with support from the City of Chicago, Cook County, philanthropic partners, and the 211 Metro Chicago Advisory Committee composed of business, civic, charitable, and social service organizations.

Please share this new resource with friends, family, neighbors, and colleagues to help ensure all people know where they can turn to get the health and social service help they need, when they need it.
