2-1-1 Caller Testimonial

“I was in my church office when the frantic call came from a member saying she was facing a court hearing with the possibility of losing custody of her children. She hoped I would know an attorney who could represent her on her very limited income. I reassured her I  would try my best to find someone to assist her. In reality I did not know any family law attorneys.

It was then that I remembered 2-1-1. In minutes, 2-1-1 gave me more information than I could have found on my own in hours! Thank you 2-1-1.”
