211 This is a referal number that you dial like 911 but it is for non-emergency information and referral. There are 25 call centers throughout the state operating during peak hours with one center fielding calls at night. This means that if you call 211 during daytime hours, you can talk to a real person who has information on all kinds of local services and supports.
