211 Maine

Basic Needs

During personal hardships and emergencies, 211 can help you find programs and services that will assist you with basic needs, such as transportation, food and clothing banks, shelters, financial and rent assistance, household goods, and utility assistance.

211 Maine provides individuals and families in need with a shortcut through what may be a confusing maze of health and human service agencies’ phone numbers and online information. By simply contacting 211, those in need of assistance are referred to appropriate agencies and community organizations.

If you aren’t able to access services from your initial referral, 211 Specialists always encourage you to contact them back for additional resources.
