Community Outreach

2-1-1 VIRGINIA employs four Outreach Specialists who travel the state in order to educate local governments, businesses, faith-based organizations, nonprofits and community members about 2-1-1 and the services that we provide. They also seek out new resources and assist current ones with updating their listing information on the 2-1-1 database.
