211 NH 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 211 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.
211 NH has 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 211 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 211 NH 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.
