    • Hi Karen, we’d love to see 2-1-1 come to Central New York too! But there is an information and referral and a crisis intervention line that serves Onondaga County. Please search our database or chat live with one of our specialists to find these resources! If you are seeking resources in another county in CNY ask one of our specialists to point you in the direction to help in your area.

  1. Looking for info on what NY counties have mobile response/mobile crisis teams to service children and families. I only see Monroe county listed.

    • Hi Angela. Thanks for your question. To find mobile crisis teams in our database please search for: “Psychiatric Mobile Response Teams” on our “Find Help” page. We serve primarily Monroe, Wayne, Livingston, Ontario, Cayuga and Seneca Counties, but we list as many Mobile Crisis Teams from around the state that we have been able to gather information about. If you don’t find what you are looking for, please feel free to use our Live Chat service or dial 2-1-1 for more assistance from one of our staff members.

  2. I am homeless and was told by social services that I would be placed in emergency housing and nothing has been done yet.

    • Hi Jamie, we do not provide direct assistance with rent/rent deposits but we try to connect people with community resources that do provide assistance with these needs. If you live in Monroe, Wayne, Livingston, Ontario, Cayuga or Seneca Counties give us a call by dialing 2-1-1 or 1-877-FLNY-211 24/hours a day or visit our Live Chat on this website to explore what options are available in your area.

    • Thanks for asking about alternate ways to contact 2-1-1/LIFE LINE. If you don’t have access to a phone but do have access to a computer with internet access you can use our Live Chat service (click the link on our home page). Our chat service is available from 8am-11pm 7 days a week and is staffed by the same team that responds to our 24 hour telephone hotline. If Live Chat doesn’t fit your needs and your situation is not a crisis, but you need information about accessing health or human service programs, you can also send an email with details about your concern and your zip code or general information about the town/county you live in and we will try to respond with some local resources and ideas. You can email from our “Contact Us” page. We generally respond to emails within 1 business day. Hope that helps.
