Bringing 2-1-1 to Placer County
Eighty-two percent of the nation and 90% of California is connected to 2-1-1. This includes Sacramento and Nevada County but not yet Placer County. 2-1-1 is a telephone number that connects people to vital community services as 9-1-1 does for life threatening emergencies. It is easy to remember, free to use, available 24 hours a day, has local information and is answered by a real person, confidentially and with multilingual/TTY capabilities. 2-1-1 can also be accessed online.
Placer County is the most populous county in California that is not yet in the system. Auburn Presbyterian Church, has taken the challenge to bring together Placer agencies and the community for the purpose of bringing the 2-1-1 system to Placer County.
