National 2-1-1 Day is February 11

United Way's 2-1-1 will celebrate National 2-1-1 Day together with 2-1-1 programs across the country on Thursday, February 11. On this day we recognize the important work done by 2-1-1 to connect people with resources in their communities.

Last year 11,265 Marathon County residents contacted United Way's 2-1-1 for help with things like rent, food, utility bills, tax assistance, child care, counseling, and help for aging parents.

One of those people was "Donna". Donna fell behind in rent payments because of her unpredictable hours at work. She made a payment agreement with her landlord, but her next check was much lower than she had expected. Without enough to cover her agreement, she received an eviction notice. Unsure of where to turn, she called United Way's 2-1-1. A 2-1-1 Information Specialist shared information about rent assistance programs in her area. In a follow-up call, Donna shared that she had received rent assistance and avoided an eviction.

If you or someone you know needs information on community resources, dial 2-1-1 or 715-848-2255 or 1-800-922-5590 to speak with an Information Specialist, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. A language interpreter service is available if needed. Uncomfortable speaking by phone? Email an Information Specialist at askus@unitedwaymc.org, or visit our 211 webpage to search our online database or view resource publications. Resource publications are also available in the lobby of the United Way of Marathon County offices at 705 S 24th Ave, Suite 400B, Wausau.
