  • Survivors who have unmet needs and require additional support as they continue their recovery should call 2-1-1 Colorado. This independent resource is free, confidential and provides multi-lingual services that refer callers to non-emergency health and human services. It’s a collaboration of eight organizations hosting six call centers across the state.
  • 2-1-1 Colorado is also available if you want to make a donation to your community or look for volunteer opportunities. Referrals are also available by dialing 2-1-1.
