We Connect Maryland So It Can Thrive

Our 501(c)(3) nonprofit responded immediately to the growing challenges of COVID-19. 211 Maryland continues to support state and local agencies and individuals. We inform, connect and advocate for individuals.

Weekly Mental Health Support

211 Health Check provides weekly, mental health check-ins with a trained professional who cares. This is a first-of-its-kind suicide prevention program.

Bilingual Push-Alerts

More than 200,000 English and Spanish-speaking Marylanders receive text messages with information and alerts before, during and after public health and safety emergencies, through a partnership with the Maryland Department of Emergency Management (MDEM).

Multilingual Services and Support

MD Stop Hate expands multilingual support, making it easier to report hate crimes and connect victims with services. This partnership with the Governor’s Office of Immigrant Affairs also provides resources like English as a Second Language classes and other necessary resources for new Americans and Immigrants.

Senior Support and Assistance

It’s easier to find aging services and resources through Maryland Access Point (MAP) through a partnership between 211 Maryland and the Maryland Department of Aging. MAP provides online resources and a statewide call line.

What Our Partners Say

With the launching of this new innovative approach (211 Health Check) by 211 Maryland, we have the ability to save lives. This type of partnership is an example of government partnering to help people.

The Maryland Department of Aging and 211 Maryland's existing partnership allows both of our agencies to expand our reach and bring information about long-term services and supports to those who need them. This improvement will make our services more readily and conveniently available.
