If you have never had to reach out and ask for help or support, it can be overwhelming. In fact for many people, asking for help is so uncomfortable and difficult that they will experience prolonged hardship before seeking assistance, this is often the case in community disasters.
Not knowing who to call or where to turn is another reason that people do not reach out. Fortunately in Fort McMurray there is an easy to remember number that can connect community members to the information, resources and referrals that they need. 211 has been operating in Calgary and Edmonton since 2004, and 211 Wood Buffalo launched in 2014.
211 Wood Buffalo is funded by the United Way Fort McMurray, and operates through Some Other Solutions Society for Crisis Prevention (SOS).
