Children are at the heart of why many people call 2-1-1: They want to improve and protect the quality of life of the little ones.
“That makes the Florida Department of Children and Families’ campaigns to prevent childhood deaths even more near and dear to our hearts,” said Libby Donoghue, 2-1-1 Brevard executive director.
Callers’ needs may be basic – such as food and shelter – or emotional. For example, 2-1-1 specialists logged 273 callers in need of referrals related to “child abuse prevention/parent education” and 159 callers in need of safe, affordable day care.
