united way has a new program!

Be on the look out for 2-1-1 PLUS! 2-1-1 PLUS is a way for people in downtown Athens to access 2-1-1 resources even without a phone. We have partnered with our friends at Interfaith Hospitality Network of Athens to put a designated phone that anyone can use to connect with 2-1-1. 

Have you ever met someone in need who did not have a cell phone? Tell them about 2-1-1 PLUS at Interfaith Hospitality's Network office in downtown Athens!
