If you or someone you know needs emergency assistance, contact 2-1-1.

2-1-1 is a non-emergency telephone number. It is a free service that helps individuals and families access emergency services in their local community.

Call specialists are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. They assess callers’ needs and connect them to health and human services agencies and nonprofits that can help.

If you or someone you care about is encountering mental health challenges, we encourage you to find the mental health resources near you to obtain help.
