Community services line calls rise 10 percent


Follow The Republic:


COLUMBUS, Ind. — Calls to the Bartholomew County 211 information hotline increased by 10 percent in 2013, with more people seeking help to find resources to obtain food, clothing and money.

While increases are being seen, the 211 office believes call volume would go up even more with heightened awareness of the program.

211 is a hotline area residents can call to receive information about community services. It is sponsored through the United Way of Bartholomew County, where phones are answered at 1531 13th St.

Details will be included Thursday's edition of The Republic.
