Berks Alliance to Spotlight “What Is PA 211?”

Berks Alliance will host a webinar entitled “What Is PA 211?” on March 12 at noon via Zoom.

As needs within our community continue to rise, where can friends and neighbors go for assistance?

PA 211 is a great place to start! From help with utilities bill to housing assistance, after-school and summer programs for kids, and more, Berks County residents can connect with community resources through PA 211.

Across the state of Pennsylvania, PA 211 answers more than 300,000 calls, texts, and chats, and people are connected to resources on the web over 980,000 times. In 2023, there were 17,970 contacts to PA 211 by Berks County residents looking for assistance.

Learn more about this free, confidential community resource that connects community members in need to life-changing support. Hear from Dr. Emily Aubele, Vice President, PA 211, United Way of Pennsylvania, and Kristin Gehris, Community Impact Assistant Director, United Way of Berks County.

Juliet Simplicio, Supervisor, Health Equity, and Riley Scepansky, Community Health Worker, Tower Health Reading Hospital’s Community Wellness Department, will share how, as a community partner, they utilize PA 211 to connect patients with community resources.
