2-1-1 is New Hampshire’s first statewide, comprehensive, information and referral service. Thanks to a unique coalition of non-profit, government, corporate and volunteer partners, New Hampshire residents need only dial 2-1-1 to be connected, at no cost, with trained information and referral specialists who can provide them with the health and human service information they need to get help, give help or discover options.
This year 2-1-1 NH officially helped its 1 millionth person.
The service is available 365 days a year, 24 hours a day and all calls are confidential and multilingual. Special thanks to Eversource Energy which provides the technology required to host this critical program.
During tax season, the 2-1-1 NH team schedules the appointments for the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) Program that provides free tax preparation for individuals and families with low-to-moderate income.
The 2-1-1NH is also part of the successful Safe Station program in the Greater Manchester area that provides immediate access to treatment and recovery services from substance misuse. This is a collaborative effort with the Manchester Fire Department, the City of Manchester and local recovery service agencies. To date, more than 2,500 individuals have accessed this program.
