Need Help?

The pages in this section of the website describe how UCAN and other major local agencies can help you find help with many basic needs. We also realize that you may have other needs not addressed on our website. If you cannot find information addressing your particular need here, 211Info is a statewide non-profit providing the easiest way to connect to other non-profit and public agencies. The easiest way to use 211Info is simply to dial 211 anywhere in the State of Oregon toll-free. You can then talk to someone who will help guide you to resources that can help you meet your need.

You can also access 211Info online. Once you are at the website, select the word Search on the top menu or the symbol of a magnifying glass. When a new page appears, enter your zip code where indicated. You can then search for a type of service by entering the name of the service, e.g., food pantries, or a specific agency by entering all or part of the name of the agency where indicated. 211Info's online system will display the agency providing the service closest to you. If you either do not know the name of the agency providing the help you need, or do not know the exact name of the service you need, you can browse service categories by selecting the "ABC" button. When the next page appears, you can select individual letters and look at a full listing of services starting with that letter.
