On February 11, National 2-1-1 Day, Interface’s 211VC is celebrating its 13th year of being there for you when you need it most!
Happy 13th Birthday 211VC!
Every day, thousands of people nationwide call, text, and web chat with highly trained 2-1-1 specialists who help them find and access food, housing, health care, financial coaching, job training, disaster resources and more. Since forming on February 11, 2005 as California’s first 2-1-1, 211VC has:
- provided assistance during multiple tragedies and disasters locally and nationwide, most recently including Hurricanes Irma & Harvey, the Las Vegas mass shooting, the wildfires in Northern California and the Thomas Fire and resulting mudslide
- provided 2-1-1 services for 18 counties state-wide
- started push-text capabilities offering assistance in three ways: Call, Click, Text
- connected over 42,000 community members in 2017 to health and human service resources, the highest rate since becoming the first 2-1-1 in the state of California in 2005
211VC is as program of Interface Children & Family Services in partnership with County of Ventura, First 5 Ventura County, and United Way of Ventura County supported by: Dignity Health, Kaiser Permanente, Ventura County Community Foundation and the Cities of Camarillo, Ventura, Oxnard, Simi Valley, Port Hueneme, Moorpark, Ojai, Thousand Oaks, Santa Paula, and Fillmore.
