New film showcases the work of 2-1-1 in helping connect people in need to services that can help

Dial 2-1-1

2-1-1 is our region's one-call resource for information about nonprofit programs to help in times of need.

A new film called Crisis Call 211 presents a powerful portrait of the current economic crisis from the viewpoint of families struggling to get by in the Portland, OR area.

The film is produced by Joe and Harry Gantz, the Emmy award-winning creators of HBO’s Taxicab Confessions and executive producers of the CBS drama The Defenders.

You can watch a preview for the film here.
