“MARKETPLACE FOR SERVICES IN CNY”

Dial 2-1-1

RECOMMENDATION FOR AN AGE-FRIENDLY CNY

 

GUEST PRESENTER: Cheryl Giarrusso, Director, Contact Community Services

 

The F.O.C.U.S. Age Friendly CNY Citizens Strategic Action Planning Group has been researching how to provide a marketplace of services for local residents to provide them with the resources that will make our region a place where people will want to continue to live as involved, productive citizens as they grow older. The recent announcement of a 2-1-1 service provides an answer. In July 2000 the Federal Communications Commission assigned the three-digit dialing code 2-1-1 for the exclusive purpose of providing widespread access to community information and referral services. Recently, CNY launched a local marketplace of services available by dialing 211. Check out the website: www.211cny.com

CNY Partners are: Contact Community Services, Jefferson County, Lewis County, Onondaga County, Oswego County, St. Lawrence County, The United Way of Central New York, United Way of Northern New York, The United Way of Greater Oswego County, and 2-1-1 New York. Funders are: 2-1-1 New York, Onondaga County, The United Way of CNY, The United Way of Greater Oswego County.
