King County 2-1-1 provides the most comprehensive information on health and human services available to King County residents. Our Information and Referral Specialists are experts in understanding the eligibility requirements of many human service systems. They can coach callers on the best way to present their situation to the agency that may be able to help them and problem-solve when services are not available.
We are experts on food, shelter, housing, rent and utility assistance, legal assistance, financial assistance, governmental assistance programs, health care, employment, education and family support programs. Whatever your questions, call us so we can help.
We are part of the Washington Information Network 211 (WIN211), which assures the quality of the seven 2-1-1 call centers serving Washington residents. We maintain King County services as part of the WA 2-1-1 Community Resources Online database.
