Call 2-1-1: There's Always an Answer

Wouldn't it be great if there was one place to call when you needed help? United Way thinks so. That’s why we run the NC 2-1-1 Asheville Call Center.  When you need help or information for yourself, your family or someone you know all you need to do is dial 2-1-1 or visit NC211.org to get connected. Dial 2-1-1, it’s FREE, 24/7, and available in all languages. Our NC 2-1-1 staff don’t just stay in the office, waiting for people to call. They also take the time to head out into the community, attending service fairs and conducting trainings to ensure that as many people as possible know how we can help. Want more information? Drop us an email or give us a call at (828) 252-4357.
