Vermont 2-1-1 is the number you dial to find out about hundreds of important community resources, like emergency food and shelter, disability services, counseling, senior services, healthcare, child care, drug and alcohol programs, legal assistance, transportation needs, educational and volunteer opportunities, and much more.
2-1-1 is not an emergency number like 9-1-1, nor is it directory assistance like 4-1-1.
2-1-1 is your first step toward solving everyday problems or when you face difficult times.
It’s a free service. It’s confidential. It’s 24/7.
