New Information and Referral Phone Service Available

The 211 phone service in the Bay Area is a toll-free, easy-to-remember phone number that connects people in need with local community services, such as child care, youth programs, job training, senior services, immigration assistance, counseling, food, shelter and much more.

The 211 service is available 24 hours a day in multiple languages, seven days a week in various languages in seven Bay Area counties: Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, Napa, San Francisco, Santa Clara and Solano. Plans to bring 211 to Sonoma and San Mateo are actively underway. The basis for 211 in Contra Costa County is what was formally known as the Contra Costa Resource Online Database (CCCORD), which contains hundreds of records about programs and services. In Contra Costa County, 211 is run by the Contra Costa Crisis Center.
