A mother with 3 young children called 2-1-1 late in the day when she ran out of gas coming home from a doctor's appointment in Denver, she was stranded between LaSalle and Greeley. Thanks to resources found through 2-1-1, a Weld County Sheriff was able to locate the family and helped them get to a near by gas station where a local nonprofit had arranged for her to get the gas she needed to get her children home safe.

It's stories like this that make us realize how important it is for people in Weld County to have access to full-service referral help. Every year thousands of people utilize 2-1-1 to find resources and get directed to the help they need.
