Each year, more and more older adults are making a positive impact in their communities. By engaging and supporting all community members, older adults play a key role in the vitality of their neighborhoods, networks and lives. Every May, the Administation for Community Living leads the nation’s observance of Older Americans Month. For more information, feel free to check out their website for ways to help you #ConnectCreateContribute.
If you’d like to learn more about resources available for older adults in your community, Vermont 211 is here to help! You can call us directly at 211, text your zip code to 898211, or check out our Community Resource Directory.

In 2018, what were Vermonters most in need of?

Each year, we evaluate the services Vermonters were referred to the most and publish them as our Barometer of Community Needs. Curious about which services made the Top 10? Click here to find out!


Vermont 2-1-1 is the number to dial to find out about hundreds of important community resources, like emergency food and shelter, disability services, counseling, senior services, health care, child care, drug and alcohol programs, legal assistance, transportation agencies, educational and volunteer opportunities, and much more.


2-1-1 is not an emergency number like 9-1-1, nor is it directory assistance like 4-1-1.


2-1-1 is your first step toward solving everyday problems or

when you are facing difficult times.

It’s a free service. It’s confidential. It’s 24/7.
