211 service adding 5 northern counties

United Way of Allen County’s 211 services have expanded into six new counties in northern Indiana, including Kosciusko, according to officials.

The service is the national dialing code for free, confidential 24-hour access to more than 1,800 local health and human services, such as housing, shelter, food, legal aid, clothing, counseling, utility assistance, health care, transportation and more.

Allen, Adams, DeKalb, Noble, Steuben, Wells and Whitley counties already use the system, which will now include – in addition to Kosciusko – Elkhart, Fulton, LaPorte, Marshall and St. Joseph counties.
