211 is Lake County’s free one-stop shop for help:

211 is always open, always confidential, and always free. Speak to a live person when you call in English or Spanish.
The 211 team will also interpret to more than 150 other languages.

Right this very minute, there are people on the other end of 211 waiting for your call.
United Way of Lake County has trained them to guide you to the help you need.

Text your zip code to 898211. People at our 211 contact center are waiting for your texts at this moment. Someone will text you back. Then all you have to do is text your question to begin getting the help you need.

  • You just got a new job but are not sure how to get there. 211 can send you to transportation resources that can help.

Who’s in Charge of 211?

United Way of Lake County leads 211 but many, many other health and human service providers in our county, including the Lake County Government, contribute time, talent, and money to make it run smoothly. UWLC is extremely grateful for their support. UWLC has a contract with Interface Children and Family Services, a leading nonprofit, to be our 211 contact center. Trained 211 experts who work at the contact center are standing by to take your phone calls and texts.
