Need Help? Start Here.

2-1-1 is our nationally accredited information and referral system available via phone, chat, email and text.

It’s free, confidential, multilingual and always open. It’s a gateway to health and social services, government assistance and local community resources. Think 9-1-1 emergencies. 2-1-1 everything else.

Our trained and experienced Community Resource Specialists respond to every call with compassion and the tools needed to make the right connections. Those connections are made using our resource database (also searchable online at nj211.org). It includes important details, eligibility requirements and program specifics that are updated annually for 3000 agencies providing more than 10,000 different programs and services. Accurate information, respectfully and courteously conveyed makes the difference between getting help and feeling lost and powerless. Contact 2-1-1 if you need help.

“I can think of no better place for people to reach out for help. They have a place to call, a place to connect, a place to get assistance.”
– Elizabeth Connolly, (Former) Commissioner at NJ Department of Human Services
