Basic Needs

When I need help, I call 2-1-1.

to those who need assistance with food, shelter, medical care and other basic necessities of life.


Community members seeking help with utilities, housing, transportation, food, and other basic needs can find answers by making a single phone call to 2-1-1.

Adequate food, shelter, and clothing are basic necessities of life. At any time, individuals can find themselves in difficult circumstances with insufficient resources. A significant number of area families face financial instability because of job loss and unemployment. Even those with jobs struggle to pay bills and put food on the table. Your donations help fill the gaps and keep families in our community moving forward.
