Improving health outcomes takes teamwork

NJ 2-1-1 provides a vital connection to community services and resources that are essential to good health. Healthcare providers who are working to improve the health of patients struggling with life's basic needs, can add NJ 2-1-1 to their healthcare team. Together, we can make a difference.

NJ 2-1-1 is free, confidential, multilingual and always open. New Jersey residents who need help finding affordable housing, food, utility assistance, and other basic needs, can dial 2-1-1 or text their zip code to 898-211 and we will put them in touch with existing community resources that can help.  

The following video was supported by funds from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention through the New Jersey Department of Health - Diabetes Prevention and Control Program. If you have patients who need help managing or preventing diabetes, tell them to call 2-1-1 to find out about classes in their area.
