2 1 1 Outreach Program
It's a program developed for responding to community needs throughout the county.
This is a service of the Volunteer Center of Battle Creek in partnership with United Way of Greater Battle Creek.
211 is the first call center in the state of Michigan. It's an easy number to remember, toll-free number that makes the critical connection between those in need and the appropriate community resources that can help.
In addition to helping those in need, people who want to give back to the community through volunteerism, donations and civic involvement can call 211 and reach a universal community connecting point.
Recently, a forum hosted by Representative Mark Schauer, the Volunteer Center of Battle Creek, and the Albion Volunteer Service Organization was held at Washington Gardner Middle School in the Multi-Purpose Room.
The forum provided an avenue to be informed about the new program and to ask questions.
Guest's panelist included:
Representative Schauer wrote an amendment to the Michigan Telecommunications Act to allow 211 dialing in Michigan.
He also assisted the Volunteer Center of Battle Creek with all steps of the process with the Michigan Public Service Commission, and continues to assist statewide efforts to expand 211 dialing across Michigan.
Whatever your need--remember to call 211.
