SC 2-1-1 has a robust database with information on over 14,000 local, state, regional and national resources. UWASC leverages its contact center assets to handle outsourcing of contact center services needed by a number of state agencies. By providing these support services, we are able to scale our 2-1-1 infrastructure and address small and large scale events alike, providing much needed service referrals to individuals and families in need. These partnerships allow us the opportunity to reinvest into direct services to South Carolinians... services that would otherwise require funding from other sources, such as disaster and emergency relief.
