Call 2-1-1 for Assistance or to Donate Goods, Services or Money to Help Your Communities

The Tennessee Emergency Management Agency and the Volunteer Organizations Active in Disaster are partnering with the United Way organizations of Tennessee to provide 2-1-1 as a single source for disaster survivors to get assistance from local groups and non-profits, as well as coordinate volunteer efforts with local agencies.

If you need help, call 2-1-1 and operators in the call centers will match the unmet need with the appropriate volunteer agency, non-profit group or charitable organization.

If you want to donate your time, goods, services or cash, you can call 2-1-1 and the operators will be able to coordinate your donation or volunteers with the unmet needs in the community.

If you are having a life-safety emergency, you should always call 9-1-1.
