On-line Event: 211 One Year Later
October 27 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
United Way of Lake County is proud to celebrate the first anniversary of 211 services for Lake County. Join with community leaders and stakeholders to learn how 211 has transformed the way individuals and families from all across the county are connecting with essential health and human services.
You’ll hear about 211’s measurable impact, data on community-specific needs, and the results we have seen in year one, including the increased needs arising from the pandemic. You’ll also hear stories of how 211 has made a real difference in Lake County for community members, employers, agencies, and local government.
Marc Jones, Director of Waukegan Township’s Eddie Washington Center, will moderate a diverse panel of local leaders discussing how 211 more efficiently connects people in need to a wide range of available resources to improve and save lives, including a more in-depth discussion on the top need(s) and solutions to address them.
Help us recognize the incredible support and collaboration of so many individuals, employers, community leaders, and partners who have joined with us to bring this vital service to our community, and celebrate the year one results we’ve achieved together.
