Carson City February 11, 2022

The Aging and Disability Services Division (ADSD) of the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) is honored to support 211 Day in Nevada, on February 11, 2022, as recognized by Governor Steve Sisolak.

Nevada 211 is a free, confidential service available 24/7/365 to empower Nevadans in achieving optimal self- sufficiency, health and well-being. Since 2006, millions of people have received help from Nevada 211 where individuals and families are able to connect with vetted health and human service resources.

“Nevada 211 is a vital resource for those looking for support and services in their communities and Nevada 211 has done a tremendous job in providing up-to-date information and resources as it relates to COVID-19 for the last two years,” said Governor Sisolak. “I am thankful for the many Nevada organizations who participate, and I am proud of the staff who work hard every day to help Nevadans.”

The Nevada 211 database includes 1,200 agencies offering nearly 4,000 programs at more than 2,300 locations. Nevada 211’s call specialists are trained to help people find the right agency for the needed service. This includes information on local health care, housing, food, utilities, transportation, child care assistance, COVID-19 resources and more. Providers can have their services updated or added to Nevada 211 through the website here.

“Nevada 211 is committed to helping Nevadans find the services they need. Whether by phone, app or internet, we present accurate, well-organized and easy-to-find information from state and local health and human services programs,” said Jennifer White, the Nevada 211 Coordinator for ADSD.

Nevada 211 has been vital to the State’s COVID-19 response, providing information and fielding more than 50,000 pandemic-related interactions.

“In light of the ongoing challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic, we are especially grateful for Governor Sisolak’s Proclamation this year as we support Nevadans navigating this difficult time,” said Lisa Martin, Nevada 211 Director for Money Management International. “Our trained and certified staff remain committed to providing updated and accurate information based upon help-seekers’ unique needs.”

Nevada 211 is accredited by the Alliance of Information & Referral Services (AIRS) and the database includes agencies that offer services such as food banks, shelters, rental and utility assistance, medical and mental health resources, employment support and resources for seniors, children and the disabled.
