CUMBERLAND — The Governor’s Office of Crime Control & Prevention announced fiscal 2018 funding to support 211 Maryland in its efforts to serve Maryland citizens, including those who have been incarcerated and are preparing for re-entry into the community.
By dialing 211, Marylanders are connected to more than 5,000 health and human services-related programs, including substance abuse and addiction services, child protective services, domestic violence counseling, legal aid and re-entry programs. Services are provided in more than 180 languages and available 24 hours a day, seven days a week through an online database and telephone hotline.
“Our administration is committed to helping Marylanders connect more easily to the vital resources they need to improve their quality of life,” said Gov. Larry Hogan. “By working with our local, state and federal partners, we are able to provide quality services that improve public safety, while helping those most in need.”
The 211 Maryland program is made possible through the partnership of Community Crisis Services Inc., the Life Crisis Center, the Mental Health Association and the United Way of Central Maryland.
“Connecting Marylanders with up-to-date resources that keep them safe and improve their lives is a significant component of what this office does,” said Glenn Fueston, executive director for the Governor’s Office of Crime Control & Prevention.
