Mass2-1-1 New Information and Referral Resource for Families and Children Requiring Assistance
Mass 2-1-1 is a new information and referral service for children, youth and families offered by the Executive Office of Health and Human Services. EOHHS has contracted with MASS 2-1-1 Inc. to provide enhanced information and referral services to families and children who are dealing with these challenging issues.
This program supports all families, including families who are involved with Chapter 240 of the Acts of 2012, also known "Families and Children Engaged in Services" legislation. The legislation, which became effective in November of 2012, provides services for children who are runaways or truants, or children who are having serious problems at home and in school; the law also helps children who are victims of commercial sexual exploitation.
Families can dial 211 from any phone and be connected to a trained information and referral specialist, anytime of the day or night.
