February 11th is right around the corner and that means 211info staff are preparing for our annual 2-11 event. (Get it? 2-11, Feb. 11, 2-1-1, year 2011 – you Robert Langdon types are loving this, right?)
Today, we are introducing the first installment of our new video series: "211 Insights." The project, created by Omar Salomon, gives you a glimpse inside the minds of 211info staff. Enjoy and please let us know what you think in the comment section below.
Today, access to vital information is more important than ever. Watch excerpts of CEO Liesl Wendt’s address that outline the future of 211info and the future of increasing access to information that will improve the lives of every Oregonian and Southwest Washingtonian.
We recently analyzed our caller statistics from last month and nearly 60% of callers were newly unemployed or had a reduction in wages, while more than 50% of callers had never used our services before. As need in our community continues to rise, our services are more crucial than ever. So, we were thrilled to learn 211’s national and local profile would get a big boost.
