South Carolina residents now have a new way to find help and locate the resources they need with the SC 2-1-1 app. Individuals can download and use the app for free on their Android or Apple devices. “We are taking the same reliable, free information you find when dialing the phone number 2-1-1 and putting it in the palm of your hands,” states Richard LaPratt, Executive Vice President of Contact Center Services at United Way Association of South Carolina.
SC 2-1-1 information and referral is a free, confidential service of United Way Association of South Carolina that connects individuals to health and human services. Anyone can access this service 24 hours a day, seven days a week by dialing the three-digit number, 2-1-1, from a landline or mobile phone; searching the website or using the online chat at www.SC211.org; or using the SC 2-1-1 app.
“United Way is simplifying the way individuals search for resources in their communities. The app offers privacy and convenience to those who need help. It is for those who are looking for help with paying bills, temporary shelter, food, job training, tax preparation, or any other service they need.” LaPratt explains.
