211 Helpline celebrates 2-11 Day

February 11th is National 211 day to bring attention to the helpline center and the services they provide.

The Helpline Center of the Black Hills  recently added service to Oglala Lakota County as well as a new texting feature called ‘Text for Hope’ line, which is open for all high school students who need  information or support services.

The mission of the Helpline Center is making lives better by giving support, offering hope and creating connections all day, every day.

They fulfill their mission by supporting families, children, and military along with offering crisis support to those in times of need.

They also connect volunteers with opportunities within communities.

Audrey Nordine, Helpline Center Black Hills Program Coordinator, says, “211 is really meant for everyone, we do have callers that are calling for basic needs, like emergency food and shelter but it’s also intended for people that are maybe they are experiencing grief for the first time and we can direct them to a support group, or we can direct you to a resource in the black hills to donate a couch.”

Banners are up throughout downtown Rapid City for the month of February.
