PA 2-1-1 Providing a Connection
to the Help You Need
This program, operated by CONTACT Altoona, helps any individual or agency in need of referral assistance for health and human services in Blair County, as well as Bedford, Cambria, and Somerset Counties. By dialing 2-1-1, callers are assisted by a specialist who has access to an online comprehensive database. The call specialist is able to determine the caller’s needs and provide them with the agencies and organizations that provide the needed service. Additionally, CONTACT Altoona continually updates and maintains the online database, providing community members and agency representatives with the most current and comprehensive resources. United Way of Blair County is proud to support CONTACT Altoona and PA 2-1-1. To access the PA 2-1-1 database on the web, click here.
