United Way Silicon Valley is providing a great new resource for our San José diocese parish communities.

Dial 211 for a free, non-emergency, telephone service that connects people with hundreds of community services. A trained, caring professional will help callers in 140 languages, 24 hours a day, find information and referrals for:
  • basic needs,
  • child and elder care,
  • counseling,
  • employment assistance,
  • health services,
  • immigration assistance,
  • volunteering,
  • donating,
  • and so much more.

Dial 211 is for everyday needs and in times of crisis.
