Wyoming 211 a Useful Resource – If Organizations Participate
Written by Andrew-Rossi on May 9, 2017
There’s a new help line available to residents for community assistance – but it will only work if local organizations plug in.
Wyoming 211 is a help line that is already in place in parts of Wyoming. Any organization or business that is offering community services to the public at large can register for free to be part of the 211 directory, and any resident in need of services can dial that simple number and be directed to the appropriate service in Park County.
However, Ashley Trudo, public relations director for West Park Hospital, says that the only way that this resource will work is if local organizations actually register to be part of the service.
Trudo adds that the 211 service isn’t just for health care services – any organization that provides beneficial resources to the community, from utility assistance to food and clothing banks and mentoring programs, is encouraged to register.
Wyoming 211 is based out of Cheyenne, and through funding sources is able to offer this service for free as a statewide resource.
