211 Highlights

Introducing The New 211 Nebraska/SW Iowa App

The 211 Nebraska/SW Iowa App is available now for Android and Apple products and allows users to find the resources they need and save information that they can access offline as well. Download the app and get connected today!

New 211 Office Space

 Starting in spring of 2019, during catastrophic flooding in our region, calls to the hotline have been elevated – and the pandemic increased volumes even more. That meant the 211 team needed more space, equipment and Community Resource Specialists to assist callers in our community who are struggling. While our Community Resource Specialists are still working from home, as soon as it is safe to do so they will be able to work in this new space.

Celebrating 211 Day

Every 2/11 United Way’s across the country celebrate all the amazing work the 211 helpline does for our communities. Follow the United Way of the Midland’s Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Twitter channels to see how we are celebrating 211’s impact in the Omaha and Council Bluffs Metro on 2/11.
