Dung's story

Together, We Can

Building a strong community that takes care of everyone who lives here depends on your generous support.



Overcoming Financial Hardship
Bay Area resident Dung Pham was once a single mother struggling to find time to graduate from school and build a better future for her daughter. For help, she called 211 where a trained specialist helped identify her particular needs and link them to community resources. With some of the basics in place--like childcare, professional clothes for interviews, housing support--Pham was able to complete school and is now a successful marketing consultant and the mother of a 13-year-old with a bright future.

Our 211 Helpline
Instead of multiple calls leading to dead ends, call one number to reach a trained specialist and get matched with the right services. The 211 helpline connects callers with hundreds of programs to help people find food, housing, health care, senior services, child care, legal aid, and volunteer opportunities. 211 also assists during times of disaster, providing those in distress with critical information about evacuation routes, food, and shelter. More than 191,626 calls we answered last year. LEARN MORE
