211 Helpline App is for South Dakota Residents

The title says it all. This specific app is geared toward the residence of South Dakota, though you can use your current location (outside of SD) to search for resources but the results may be limited. Your best option is to use the 2-1-1 Locator website to find your local 211. The locator will list the phone number and give you a link to the website where you can find resources for your location. 211 is international, supported by United Way and has a wide variety of resources.
