Get Arkansas connected. Get the 211.
Real People. Real Needs. Real Connections.
Join United Way and an elite team of AmeriCorps members helping people in need connect to local resources through the statewide expansion of Arkansas 211. As a high profile project, Arkansas 211 is a free, confidential referral and information helpline and website that links individuals to essential health and human services, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Last year, 211 systems across the country made over 12.8 million connections for assistance.
As an AmeriCorps Member, you will be joining 80,000 Americans of all ages engaging in a year of meaningful service. Joining this AmeriCorps team will challenge you to take the path less traveled, to break the status quo, to and be part of the solution. Your mission for this service year, should you choose to accept it, has three objectives:
- Identify Arkansas social service resources and populate the 211 resource database with this information.
- Train local nonprofit and service providers to use the 211 system.
- Implement a 211 public awareness campaign.
