Sacramento Community Information

Larry O. Doss Tuesday, December 1, 2009

The Sacramento Community Services Planning Council founded the 2-1-1 Sacramento service. This service is free of cost and is available to the residents all days of the week, round the clock! Special services are provided to the disabled. A special feature of this service is that assistance is rendered in many languages. This program is the combined initiative of the Sacramento Commissions for housing, human help, aging agency, courts, security of homeland, employment and emergency services.

The 2-1-1 service database includes over 2,400 registered non profit organizations. The trained specialists are equipped to provide complete attention to individual callers. These well trained specialists render services in field of child care, home loans, senior citizen services, employment and job services, food and health care, finance and accounting and many more.

Earlier to the launch of the 2-1-1 service, InfoLine Sacramento dominated the referral information services in Sacramento for over 30 years.

The Sacramento Community Services Planning Council takes ideas from people and turns it into action through community meetings and social gatherings. This council also conducts research on health, social and financial issues in regular intervals. The statistics and results of these surveys are announced to the public through social media.

The idea of the 2-1-1 service is to link an array of government organization, non-profit organizations and public agencies in a very efficient network. This service was launched in Ventura County on February 11th 2003. Later it was made available in many other places with Sonoma and Monterrey Counties included in the network recently in 2009.

The family and health department of the 2-1-1 Sacramento service provides the following services:

• Advocacy services determined to make a new era of child care accessible to new and young parents.
• Child care services that educate parents on development of children, child care requirements, importance of breast feeding and all aspects of children.
• Food services provide assistance on healthy eating, women and child care and other nutrition aspects.
The housing department assists people in buying homes and managing their finances. This department also reaches out to residents the facts about the loans made available by the federal government to low income people like the VA and FHA loans. The resale of homes is also administered by this department. Another important service is the development of good neighborhood to build a better society.
The employment and job services provided by 2-1-1 make an attempt to reach out to the eligible population for all job opportunities created in order to maintain stable economy.
The other services offered by the 2-1-1 program are an attempt by the government to improve the living conditions of residents and maintain harmony in the society.

If you cannot reach the service providers on 2-1-1, you can call (916) 498-1000. At present 2-1-1 is accessible to 80% of the residents. The target is to make the services of 2-1-1 available to the entire population by the end of 2010.
