211 HELPLINE CENTER NOW AVAILABLE TO ALL RESIDENTS OF SOUTH DAKOTA
The Helpline Center began offering the 211 Helpline in South Dakota in 2001. Since that time 211 has worked with many communities throughout the state to expand the service to additional locations, but until now weren't able to offer a statewide service.
Thanks to the passing of Senate Bill 2 through the South Dakota Legislature this year, 211 is thrilled to announce that the 211 Helpline phone number is now available to everyone in our state. The 211 Helpline can be called 24/7 by anyone needing information or support - whether financial, family, mental health, or disaster-related.
Each year our professionally trained staff respond to more than 45,000 calls, texts and emails, providing help for simple and complex questions.
