2-1-1 Available in Benton County

2-1-1 services are available to most residents of Benton County thanks to a grant from Benton Community Foundation.  Benton 2-1-1 was officially launched on February 11, 2005 in the Rotunda at the Benton County Courthouse in Fowler. 

The regional plan is for the Lafayette Crisis Center to extend its 2-1-1 call center services to Clinton, Carroll, Fountain, Warren and Montgomery counties. To make this happen, funding is needed from these counties.  Contact the Crisis Center for more information about how to bring 211 to residents of these counties.

Indiana 211 Partnership, Inc. is a nonprofit organization dedicated to building the 2-1-1 system for Indiana. The goal is to create a seamless network of information and referral services that enables anyone in Indiana in need of human services to have quick referrals to those who provide them by dialing 2-1-1. Additionally, data will be collected to assist communities in assessing needs and allocating resources.

For additional information about 2-1-1 implementation across the country, visit the website of National 2-1-1 www.211.org and AIRS www.airs.org
