Community-Based Resources
Human Services in Nebraska
Every hour of every day, someone in Nebraska needs essential services–from finding substance abuse assistance to securing adequate care for a child or an aging parent.

Faced with a dramatic increase in the number of agencies and help lines, people often don’t know where to turn.

In many cases, people end up going without these necessary and readily available services because they do not know where to start. 2-1-1 gives Nebraskans two ways to look for services.

  • search the ne211.org online database
  • dial 2-1-1 (not available in all Nebraska Counties at this time)

Both are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
