Resource Guides

Each year, the Helpline Center produces over 30 resource guides.  They are designed to highlight the basic need resources in a community and provide an easy way to access the information.  The guides do not contain all of the resources found in the 211 database.

In addition, the Helpline Center has partnered with local funders to create guides containing mental health and substance abuse resources.


Through 211, the Helpline Center has partnered with community organizations on different ways to utilize 211 as the first access point to resources. From assisting in scheduling tax appointments in Black Hills, to registering clients for the Sioux Falls Rake the Town, the Helpline Center is excited to use 211 in a variety of innovative ways aligning with the Helpline Center’s mission of creating connections all day, every day.
