Q & A: How Can I Get an Updated Copy of the Quick Guide?

operator2Have you been wondering when the next version of the Quick Guide is going to come out for Marion County? Well we have some great news. We have something that’s even better.

2-1-1’s database has over 220 agencies just in Marion County alone. Our database also has resources that Marion residents qualify for, but may be regional, state or national resources. Information and Referral Specialists, who support 2-1-1 clients, receive more than 80 hours of training, can serve clients who speak any language, and are available 24 hours a day with a Senior Crisis Specialist always available to support the staff. At 2-1-1, responsiveness is just as important as the help itself. The average wait time for someone to speak with someone when you call 2-1-1 is less than one minute.

Do you work for an agency and you want to be able to give clients information on paper? We would be happy to provide you with as many 2-1-1 information cards as you need. Simply contact 2-1-1 and we will get them to you promptly.
