211 Info and Referral
211 is the national, toll-free, three-digit phone number to call 24 hours per day for information about local health and social services. It enables people to find out about valuable and up to date resources in their community quickly and easily.
In Contra Costa County we have an online resource database. Call specialists use the database to refer callers to services, while county case workers, nonprofit staff, school counselors, clergy, law enforcement personnel, private therapists, and others access the information free of charge for their own clients. All resources are updated regularly and coded according to national taxonomy standards. (From the Contra Costa Crisis Center Website)
