Get Connected. Get Help.
Utah 211 makes finding help easier. Our statewide resource database and referral network is designed to help every Utahn get support to meet their basic needs when in crisis or difficult circumstances.
We are bridging the gap between access to local resources and Utahns reaching their full potential. That’s why this vital service is available 24/7, in multiple languages and is completely confidential.
Meeting real needs in real time
Utah 211 is a collaborative service of the United Ways of Utah, comprised of a team of compassionate, highly trained Information Specialists, Database Curators, Disaster Specialists, and Outreach Coordinators. We partner with organizations across the state, which allows 211 to provide broad support that ensures timely, effective connections to health and human resources to those seeking help.
