2-1-1 Information and Referral

CALL | SEARCH & CHAT | TEXT –  Confidential & Bilingual

Colorado 2-1-1 Information and Referral at United Way of Weld County serves northeast Colorado, including the counties of Kit Carson, Logan, Morgan, Phillips, Sedgwick, Washington, Weld and Yuma. The 2-1-1 database provides access to 7,500 Colorado programs and services.

Dialing 2-1-1 is the fastest and easiest way to get information when you need it. With one call you get access to resources across your community. Find help for yourself, a family member or a friend. No more wrong numbers or wasted time trying to find the right person to call. A bilingual Information and Referral Call Specialist at 2-1-1 will help connect you to the service or information you need. All calls are confidential. 2-1-1 can also help you find volunteer opportunities throughout the community. 2-1-1 isn’t just for those in need, it is also a resource for those who want to help.

2-1-1 is a valuable community asset funded through United Way of Weld and Morgan Counties, Weld County Government, local foundations, and individual donors. We invite you to be a part of the change. You can give, share a program to be listed in the database, or volunteer.

The nation’s first 2-1-1 service was created in 1997 in metropolitan Atlanta. The National 2-1-1 Initiative was launched in July 2000 when United Way of America, the Alliance of Information and Referral Systems and several other partners successfully petitioned the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to assign 2-1-1 as the universal telephone number for information and referral services.

You work hard—now make the Earned Income Tax Credit work for you. File your taxes (even if you don’t have to), claim the EITC and you could get cash back worth up to 33 days of work. If you make less than $55,000 a year, you also qualify to have your taxes prepared for free by a qualified tax preparer.

United Way of Weld County has been proud to partner with the Piton Foundation in connecting people to these tax credits and free tax preparation since 2007. The program was launched to help link even more Colorado families to valuable tax credits such as the EITC and Child Tax Credit. In addition to community volunteers, the program utilizes college and high school students who take a course on income tax preparation then operate free tax sites on their campuses (Aims Community College) for college credit.
