Outer Banks Community Services Collaborative
The Outer Banks Relief Foundation continues to support the efforts of the Outer Banks Community Services Collaborative which began in 2009. Bringing together a wide range of outreach, charitable and helping groups and organizations from throughout the area, this initiative spearheaded the effort to establish NC 2-1-1 in Dare, a comprehensive resource databank of human services, a help-line system, and a volunteer information component for the county for those seeking assistance and for those providing or interested in providing assistance. The NC 2-1-1 program was launched in 2012 with funds from the Outer Banks Community Foundation and the Outer Banks Relief Foundation. The 2-1-1 call center provides information on and access to over 140 Dare County-based services. There are also links to more than 400 regional, state and national programs, with the 2-1-1 database continuously checked and updated for accuracy. The call to 2-1-1 is free, confidential and available in any language 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. And all the information at the 2-1-1 call center can be accessed online as well at nc211.org.
This initiative is now funded by the Outer Banks Relief Foundation. We are committed to working together with all of our helping and outreach agencies and groups in our community, to minimize duplication of effort, and to maximize our limited resources by working together for the benefit of all in our community.
