2-1-1 San Joaquin
211 San Joaquin (211SJ) is a collaborative effort of health and human service providers, state legislators, local government representatives and county residents.
Its purpose is to make it easy for people to find the help they need, when they need it.
For the individual/families - 211SJ provides a much easier way to find information regarding available services, using an online database or by calling 2‑1‑1 and speaking with a trained Resource and Referral Specialist. It connects people to services 24 hours a day/7 days a week. Language barriers are overcome by the use of Language Line for translation services in over 200 languages.
For local agencies - 211SJ offers an opportunity to expand outreach and referral efforts. It maintains a comprehensive online database of agencies that offer programs and services in San Joaquin County, accessible to organizations for their own resource and referral activities.
For the community - 211SJ promotes civic engagement and community pride. Website links to all city and county calendars make it easy for anyone to find out what’s happening in their community and how to get involved. It also increases the community’s disaster response capacity. 211SJ will be prepared to support the county’s 911 system in community-wide emergency situations. 211SJ links San Joaquin County to the 211 network of California.
