2-1-1 Texas – Disaster Response Volunteers
2-1-1 Texas, a program of United Way Capital Area, provides free statewide, 24-hour access to health and human services and disaster information through its multilingual helpline.2-1-1 Texas needs Disaster Response Volunteers to answer crucial calls.

United Way Capital Area is taking a leadership role in ensuring the strength of 2-1-1 Texas. One way we’re doing that is by recruiting Disaster Response Volunteers. Disaster Response Volunteers relay information on shelters and evacuation routes. They direct people who wish to volunteer or donate goods to the agencies that can help them do so.
