I have served on the Board of Directors, volunteered in the call center, and chaired a recent celebration event. I would love to do even more. I have seen how 211 TBC effectively and efficiently connects individuals in the community with very specific services they might need. The call center representatives are knowledgeable, caring, and dedicated. The management staffs is one of the best I've seen in Pinellas County. As I longtime Board member I have been in awe of the growth and professionalism of this organization.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the community support in knowing more about this organization.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

continue to educate the portion of the community that is unaware of the services of 211TBC and how they might become involved.

I have been involved with many non-profit organizations in my life, but 2-1-1 Tampa Bay Cares, Inc. has been the jewel in my heart. It is such an honor to be a part of such an organized, focused and well managed entity. Their services are crucial to many residents in the counties served; not to mention the corporate world which provides the knowledge of the services to their employees who may need them. With an overview of services that far exceed any program I have been a part of, it is hard not for me to bring up this organization in any conversation I may have with business colleagues, friends and family. Needless to say, it always astonishes them on the vastness of assistance and programs of what 2-1-1 Tampa Bay Cares does for their community. I have been privileged to hear the many stories of how 2-1-1 TBC has literally saved a family or a life - simply by providing the connections essential to their well being.

2-1-1 TBC serves as a vital communication link between health and human services resources in Pinellas County and individuals seeking help. 2-1-1 Tampa Bay Cares is a non-profit organization that provides the only free, confidential, multi-lingual, 24-hour dialing code - 2-1-1 - for access to community information, services and resources for Pinellas, Citrus, Hernando, Lake & Sumter counties. 2-1-1 provides a one-stop service for this vital information and enables people to get assistance, before individuals and families give up, by providing someone to talk to, someone to listen, and someone to help guide them to appropriate services.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I frequently refer those in need in the community to 2-1-1 Tampa Bay Cares, especially those needing assistance with medical and dental care.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Secure more funding to enable 2-1-1 Tampa Bay Cares to better serve the community.
