United Way 2-1-1
That's right, just three numbers instead of the usual seven in a phone number. Several good features about this service. For one, it is a program of United Way of Northeast Florida, which helps insure a quality program. Also, you don't have to check the time to see if the service is available; this is a 24-hour-a-day service to the community.
This is an information and referral service. Ask your questions, and get answers. And if they don't know, they will try to find out for you. If you need services but don't know where to get them, here is arguably the best place to start.
