SPRINGFIELD -- The United Way has been working to bring 2-1-1 service to the area for years. Now, its here! Callers can dial 2-1-1 and they'll be connected to PATH Crisis Center in Bloomington, who have partnered with the United Way.
PATH Executive Director Karen Zangerle says her staff have already responded to all kinds of calls for help.
"We get all kinds of calls get people who need rent assistance to people without medical coverage need to see your doctor. We even talk to people who are having problems in their relationships and want to know about marital counseling that doesn't cost very much," said Zangerle.
Representatives from the Champaign County United Way say 2-1-1 service could come to that area as early as this spring.
