Aloha United Way launched 211 for Hawaii on July 16, 2002, becoming only the second state in the nation to offer the service statewide. People can dial 2-1-1 to find or give help during normal business hours. You can also access the 211 database online.
Professional information and referral specialists assist callers in finding help for such complex issues as substance abuse, domestic violence, financial problems and much more. Some people can also call 211 looking for volunteer opportunities.
211 is a direct service to the community. It’s another way AUW utilizes its unique ability to connect citizens, businesses, community groups, nonprofits, government agencies and others to identify community needs and develop services to enhance the social service safety net.
Data from 211 helps with community planning efforts because it provides a daily, accurate count of needs and helps us understand where gaps in services exist.
