I cannot express the words to thank you for what you have done for my family. I greatly appreciate the help; you have no idea the stress that has been relieved because of the help you got for me, my daughter, husband and little boy. When I told my husband, it brought tears to his eyes.

A single, unemployed mother from Pinellas County contacted 2-1-1 in need of gas assistance to be able to accompany her 4 year old daughter with Cerebral Palsy who was having a delicate surgery in Tampa.

I don’t know what we would have done without your help at 2-1-1. We had no idea where to turn to or where to begin to get help. I had never asked for help before. Without your help, we would have been homeless and on the streets in just a few days.A father with 2 children, called 2-1-1 looking for information on where he could get some food for his family.
