I was doing some research and found a Colorado 2-1-1 site that is quite impressive for its list of resources for those in need. Visit 211colorado.communityos.org and in particular check out the Search the 2-1-1 Database. You can search by counties in Colorado and find resources such as Dental Clinics, Rental Assistance, information on Medicaid and more. A few topics seem to have search results that are misclassified however if you are looking for resources for those in need, this website has a lot of helpful resources. If you are not in Colorado and looking for resources for those in need - try the www.211.org call center. You enter your phone number and the system gives you the listing for the local United Way chapter serving that area and website links. And always remember that you can call 2-1-1 and be connected to resources locally. 2-1-1 is a program of United Way - learn more about the organization - www.unitedway.org.
