My United Way 2-1-1
Check out myuw211.org to find out more about LaPorte County's 2-1-1 service and to search the 2-1-1 on-line database.
United Way 2-1-1 is the nationally designated number for information and referral across the country. It quickly and efficiently connects callers with local human, health, and social services in their community.
Until recently, 2-1-1 had a more limited database and only provided web services to LaPorte County. The Regional 2-1-1 database includes over 2,000 local agencies with approximately 8,000 programs and services in Elkhart, Fulton, Kosciusko, LaPorte, Marshall and St. Joseph Counties.
With the new Regional website, in addition to call capabilities, the entire region is able to access the new, larger database through chat and search capabilities. Users can chat live with a specialist or search the expansive 2-1-1 database by keyword. The new website adds more convenience and anonymity to an already amazing local resource.
United Way 2-1-1 also distributes discount prescription cards for those in need who do not have prescription insurance. These cards save people 20-50% off the cost of prescriptions. The discount prescription cards are FREE and can be obtained by dialing 2-1-1 or by downloading and printing the United Way of LaPorte County card. Click on "FREE! PRINT A CARD" on the Prescription Savings Counter to the left to download a card.
