Statewide resource provides options for those in need

A new phone line is providing assistance and options for those who need it most in Door and Kewaunee County. 2-1-1 Wisconsin is a service that connects each caller to a specialist who can determine the needs of each individual before connecting him or her to a solution using a vast database of resources. The database consists of federal, state, and local programs as well as both government and nonprofit organizations. Steve Vickman, the executive director of Help Of Door County, said the resource exists because everyone will need help at some point in their life.



Those who need assistance can dial either 2-1-1 or (877) 947-2211 to be connected to a specialist. The service can provide help during times of personal crisis or after a natural disaster.
