Area Residents Advised to Continue Calling Local Human Services Phone Numbers
As other parts of Virginia get ready to launch a new 2-1-1 call center for human services assistance this week, residents of Fairfax County and Northern Virginia should continue calling existing phone numbers. Currently, Information & Referral services are provided in Fairfax County by Coordinated Services Planning at 703-222-0880, TTY 703-803-7914, and in other Northern Virginia jurisdictions via the toll-free number 1-800-230-6977, TTY 711. These Information & Referral services provide access to human services information and referrals for basic needs assistance.
Virginia’s Statewide Information & Referral System is implementing the 2-1-1 number later this week. FairfaxCounty has been carefully following this process and is working with the Northern Virginia Regional Commission to plan for 2-1-1 services in the near future that will best fit the needs of the Northern Virginia region.
For more information on 2-1-1 in Northern Virginia, contact Tylee Smith at the Northern Virginia Regional Commission at 703-642-4638, TTY 711, or Dot Groce at Fairfax County Coordinated Services Planning at 703-324-5295, TTY 711.
