  • Title: About Us
    Descriptive info: Home.. About Us.. 211 San Bernardino County is:.. A 24/7 Call Center.. Always answered b y a live person.. The most comprehensive database of free and low cost health and human services available.. A free and confidential phone call whether dialing 2-1-1 directly, or 888-435-7565.. Staffed by professional, trained, caring people who give information &referrals to appropriate resources.. A joint United Way operation between Inland Empire, Arrowhead, Desert Communities, Mohave Valley, and United Way of the Desert.. Every day, thousands of people find themselves in circumstances where, often for the first time, they need resources that can't be found in the yellow pages or on the internet: low cost burial services, employment, a free or low-cost health clinic, training, free eyeglasses replacement for the elderly, affordable parenting classes or other counseling, legitimate help overcoming temporary financial difficulties, and many more such scenarios.. 2-1-1 has the answers.. A little history.. The 2-1-1 concept is the result of the evolution of public information thinking and the innovative marriage of technical and people power.. The first experimental 2-1-1 number began operating in Atlanta, Georgia in 1997.. In the year 2000, the FCC (Federal Communications Commission) finalized all of the N11's.. 2-1-1 was set aside for health and human services information and referrals.. Nationwide, more than 85% or the US population has 2-1-1 available.. That number is over 93% in California.. San Bernardino County has 100% coverage with the singular exception of Metro Wireless, which has chosen not to pass 2-1-1 calls anywhere.. San Bernardino County's 2-1-1 service was developed with the help of a broad, community-based team,  ...   hired in early 2005 and the application was finalized and submitted to the CPUC (The California Public Utilities Commission has jurisdiction for approving applications to provide 2-1-1 service in the state) in the latter part of the year.. Approval was received in March of 2006 and full time 2-1-1 service began on September 20, 2006, with funding from United Way, the County of San Bernardino, and First 5.. Since then, additional funding streams have been obtained including performing after-hours service for the County’s Behavioural Heath’s Access unit and the 2-1-1’s in Riverside, Fresno, Stanislaus, Sonoma and Mendocino counties.. Unlike many other counties, prior to the advent of 2-1-1, there had never been a comprehensive Information & Referral entity in San Bernardino County.. This means that the database of resources had to be created virtually from scratch and has grown to almost 1000 agencies serving San Bernardino County, offering more than 2500 programs of all kinds.. In February of 2012, 211 San Bernardino became the third agency in California to achieve AIIRS (Alliance of Information & Referral Systems) accreditation, joining 211 LA and 211 San Diego.. 211 San Bernardino has answered more than 350,000 calls, successfully connecting more than 150,000 individuals and families to the resources they need.. Growth continues, eventually reaching an expected 240,000 calls per year.. Even though there is not nearly enough help available for callers in the current economy, less than 2% of 2-1-1 callers indicate they will not use the service again.. Thanks to the following 2-1-1 funding partners.. Agency Registration.. Disaster Info.. Stats Services.. 211 Stories.. 211 Advisory Council..

  • Title: Frequently Asked Questions
    Descriptive info: FAQs.. Frequently Asked Questions.. How does 211 work?.. 211 is an Information and Referral (I&R) Service that helps you find resources that may be able to assist you with health and social services.. By dialing 2-1-1 (or 888 435-7565) in San Bernardino County, you will be assisted 24 hours a day, 7 days a week by bilingual staff (Spanish).. If you need assistance in another language, 211 utilizes a translation line, available to communicate in over 150 languages.. What if I need help, but I live in a different county?.. When you dial 2-1-1, let the Community Resource Specialist know which county you live in if you are not in San Bernardino County, and we will gladly give you the toll-free number to the 211 call center nearest you.. Can 211 give me money, or pay my bills, or find me employment?.. No.. 211 does not provide any direct services.. 211 provides INFORMATION, and CONNECTS the caller to appropriate resources by REFERRAL.. Then why not just dial 411?.. 411 can give you the number to the agency you need as long as you know the name of the agency, but 411 cannot give you other information such as program hours, days of service, other services that may be available to you, or do an assessment for additional needs.. Many callers have no clue about which agencies might be able to help them, or even if such help is available.. 211 staff, using a massive database tool, are the shortest route to finding appropriate services.. We know who does what!.. Can I find all of the agencies I need at 211?.. Hopefully so.. If an agency's information is included, you can trust that it is reliable.. The agencies referred by 211 have to submit an application  ...   process much like ISO 9000.. What if I have an urgent problem, or am in crisis? Can 211 help me?.. Yes.. 211 staff are not counselors or therapists, but they are trained to refer crisis calls to appropriate resources such as crisis centers, clinicians, or 911 rescue services in life-threatening cases.. Additionally, all 211 staff are mandated reporters and can transfer CPS/APS (abuse) calls to the appropriate authorities, or make CPS/APS reports when necessary.. 211 staff follow written protocols for suicide, domestic violence, child and elder abuse, and emergency/crisis calls.. However, in a life-threatening emergency, always dial 911 first.. How can I access 211?.. 211 San Bernardino is available by dialing 2-1-1 in San Bernardino County or by dialing our toll-free number at 1-888-435-7565.. You can also do searches on the web by going to http://211sb.. org or by searching our Blue Book directory, available for purchase through our website.. What other services does 211 provide?.. In disaster, 211 is a critical public information tool that works closely with the San Bernardino Office of Emergency Services by providing the community with information such as road closures, where to get sandbags, and the location of evacuation centers.. By providing this service, 211 helps to divert these non-emergency calls from 911.. We also provide speakers for events, limited training on how to use the 211 database, and partnerships on community projects where the assets of 211 can be of broad benefit.. I'd like to help 211 help the community.. How can I become involved?.. Your help is always appreciated..
