Since 1937, we have been making investments that build partnerships, leverage resources, empower communities, and create long-term solutions. In December 2019, our local Crisis Clinic services were moved to Everett, leaving 211 without a home. Recognizing the need, the Board voted to bring 211 into the offices of United Way of Kitsap County, giving them a permanent home. Currently, call center operators work 8:30 to 4:00 Monday through Friday. The people who work for 211 live in Kitsap County and know the resources available.
The most requested needs in 2019 were: housing/low-cost housing, legal services, utilities, rent/mortgage assistance, and transportation. 211 of the Peninsulas’ (which began as InfoLink 20 years ago) is a program of United Way of Kitsap County, supporting Kitsap, Clallam, Jefferson, Mason, Grays Harbor and Pacific Counties. Your support ensures that all calls for help will be answered.
