A Celebration!

In recognition of 2-1-1’s (Infoline) 40 year anniversary, United Way of Connecticut invites you to an open house on October 18 from 3-5 p.m. Tour the contact centers (2-1-1, 2-1-1 Child Care and 2-1-1 Child Development Infoline), meet with staff and listen to call examples. There will also be demonstrations on 2-1-1 Counts and the ALICE simulator.

2-1-1 Counts is the first tool to provide real-time, searchable and visual presentations of data from 2-1-1 call centers across the nation. Using 2-1-1 Counts, you’ll find a snapshot of community-specific needs displayed by zip code, region or call center as recently as yesterday, enabling you to easily check trends, make comparisons and share information.

ALICE stands for Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed. ALICE families are those that have earnings above the Federal Poverty Level, but below a basic cost-of-living threshold. Using the ALICE simulator, you’ll experience some of the tough choices that these families have to make every single day.

Come out to learn more about the new website features of 211ct.org and 2-1-1’s unique way of connecting state residents to local services.
