In September, we had the pleasure of meeting with Jennifer Kammeyer, the Chief Professional Officer of one of our major funders & partners United Way of North Central Iowa (UWNCI).
Jennifer filled us in one some of the exciting, new efforts UWNCI is leading including the Dial 2-1-1 phone service.
Simply dial 2-1-1 and speak with a real person regarding resources for physical and mental health, employment support, assistance for older adults and people with disabilities, children & families & emergency/crisis assistance. Dial 2-1-1 can also connect you with your local mentoring program. The service is completely free.
This phone line is answered 24/7, provides multilingual assistance and is confidential. You can also access the database of resources online.
For more information about Dial 4-1-1, you can also contact the United Way of North Central Iowa directly by calling 641-423-1774.
