211 - Help Starts Here Campaign

National 211 day is Sunday February 11, 2024. Help Starts Here

211 is a service that connects people to information on social, community, health and government services in their communities. 

When you need community support Dial 2-1-1 or visit nl.211.ca

211 is free.  It’s available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.  It is available in more than 170 languages. 

211 has very short wait times for connection to a human voice.  211 is staffed by service navigators who are trained, certified and equipped with skills to help people in challenging situations.  211 Service navigators have access to a huge and growing database of information and resources.  It’s confidential, but follow-up service is offered where a follow-up is requested.

211 helps people solve problems, address challenges, and remove barriers by connecting them with resources.  It's an important and valuable service for Newfoundlanders and Labradorians.

2-1-1 connects callers with

    • Financial Aid
  • Newcomer Support Services
    • Women's Shelters
  • Indigneous Services
    • Food Security Programs
  • Housing Services
    • Resource Centres
  • Senior Programs
    • Mental Health Support
  • and more

You can help!  Spread the word on 211 to your network!  And if you are looking for resources or support, call 2-1-1.

Looking forward to working together to help our community access support and resources.
