In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, the 211 Helpline Center has answered the call for the state of South Dakota. Whether individuals had questions about the virus, they wanted to know where the nearest food pantry was located or needed support due to anxiety and stress. It is truly an honor to support individuals when they need it most.
Each year, thousands of South Dakotan’s reach out to 211 to give help or get help. On an annual basis, the Helpline Center provides an overview of the trends and needs identified by those who contact us through 211. We appreciate the community partnerships that assist in the funding provided to curate this information.
