Since 2006, 211 Maine has been a statewide service. 211 Maine began as part of the national 211 movement designed to centralize and streamline access to health and human service information and resources with an easy-to-remember universal number and website for non-emergency help.

211 Maine is a collaborative effort of the United Ways of Maine, the State of Maine Department of Health and Human Services, and The Opportunity Alliance as the Contact Center Partner.
