3-1-1 and 2-1-1 are special local numbers that when dialed from your local area code they take you to a call center for that area.
- 3-1-1 (if available in your area) will reach a call center for local city and government services. Seniors may find this useful if they have questions about property taxes, vehicle registration and other local government services.
- 2-1-1 which is available across the county will take you to a call center for health and human resources for your area. And here is a website link to reach your local 2-1-1 number via a website - www.211.org
- The 2-1-1 'entry website' provides a link to a larger online 2-1-1 database that serves your area (if the database is available in your area) - www.211.org
- Note that the 2-1-1 service can provide information on local senior resources such as energy assistance, transitional housing, food banks and much more.
- And for more information here is an article about 3-1-1 and 2-1-1 posted on SeniorsResourceGuide.com:

- We had a nice visit with Denver 3-1-1 representatives at a local Senior Resource Day put on in October by Councilwoman Susan K. Shepherd and Denver District Attorney Mitch Morrissey and other sponsors.
- Another great online resource for researching just about anything is Wikipedia.
- They are a relatively small organization that provides a rich website framework where the content is mostly written and edited by volunteers. Check them out and donate on a regular basis. We need more websites and organizations like Wikipedia. Their domain name is www.Wikipedia.org.
