United Way of Rhode Island Celebrates a Decade of 2-1-1
GCRI members are invited to help United Way celebrate National 2-1-1 Day at the Rhode Island State House on Thursday, February 9 from 3:30-4 pm and a post-event celebration at Bravo Brasserie from 5:30-7:30pm.
The celebration will honor call specialists, partners and individuals who have made 2-1-1 in Rhode Island a national model. The annual 2-1-1 data report will also be released. Established in 2007, 2-1-1 answered nearly 200,000 requests from Rhode Islanders in the last year, and this event will highlight some of their stories, as well as highlight areas of challenge for the upcoming year.
United Way of Rhode Island’s 2-1-1 provides a human connection for people who need assistance with childcare, food, housing, and everything in between. United Way’s 2-1-1 in Rhode Island is supported by Citizens Bank.
