The United Way's 2-1-1 Matches People With Services
Disaster often strikes when we aren't ready. Sometimes the damage is more than we can handle. The United Way offers the 2-1-1 service to help. Janet Durden is the Executive Director of the United Way of Northeast Louisiana. She says the United Way offers the 2-1-1 service for non-emergencies. The 2-1-1 operators match the callers needs with available local services.
