MASS 211, 2-1-1 is the national abbreviated dialing code for free access to health and human services information and Referral.  2-1-1 is an easy-to-remember and universally recognizable number that makes a critical connection between individuals and families seeking services or volunteer opportunities and the appropriate community-based organizations and government agencies.  2-1-1 makes it possible for people to navigate the complex and ever-growing maze of human service programs.  By making services easier to access, 2-1-1 encourages prevention and fosters self-sufficiency.  It also is hoped to reduce the number of non-emergency calls inappropriately made to 911. Calls are free, available 24 hrs. a day, 7 days a week. All calls are confidential. Visit www.mass211help.org or email:info@mass211.org.
