211 works with health and human service partners from all across the St. Croix Valley region to provide the most accurate, concise information and referrals for any resident looking to get connected to critical resources. We invite providers of health, human and social services for residents of St. Croix, Pierce, Polk, and Burnett counties to join in as a 211 partner.
211 will help St. Croix Valley health and human service providers in a variety of ways, such as:
- 211 fields the first call. 211 reduces the burden on service providers like you and creates efficiencies by helping individuals find the right solution in one call. This approach will increase accurate referrals to you so you’ll spend less time redirecting calls to other agencies and more time addressing the needs of your own clients to help prevent additional issues from arising. Over time, this approach reduces the ultimate cost of services and increases the impact of program funding.
- 211 pre-screens. 211 takes care to refer to you only people who meet your agency’s eligibility requirements...helping to ensure your resources are used wisely.
- 211 saves time. 211 is a resource for you and your staff. It’s a free, 24/7 time-saving tool for social workers, doctors, nurses, government officials, and more. If someone comes to you looking for help you can’t provide, direct them to call 211 and get pointed in the right direction.
