"2-1-1" is an easy-to-remember telephone number that connects people with important community services and volunteer opportunities.
Every hour of every day someone needs essential services such as assistance for a child, aging parent, or the entire family. Faced with the growing number of agencies and help-lines, individuals may have difficulty finding help because they do not know where to start or who to contact. U.P. 2-1-1 opens the door by providing easy access to needed information and assistance.
Their mission is to provide easy accessible, responsive, and professional information and assistance to Upper Peninsula citizens and families in need.
