211 Helpline Center now available statewide

The 211 Helpline Center began offering resources and support in South Dakota in 2001 and as of July 1 is now accessible to all South Dakota residents. Through 211, the Helpline Center staff provide referrals when they are needed most, from basic human needs to disaster support and mental health resources.

Simply call 211, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and you will speak to a professionally trained support specialist. Specialists are also standing by to answer text messages if you simply text your zip code to 898211, or you can email help@helplinecenter.org. Every day people turn to 211 for information and support – whether financial, family, health, or disaster-related. The call or text is free and confidential.

Please consider distributing this half-sheet flyer promoting this valuable service to students of all ages:
