| June 6, 2014

USE!COSHOCTON – As of Friday, June 6, Coshocton County residents can now utilize the 2-1-1 service. The main purpose of this free service is to connect people with services throughout the county. Residents can dial the number to get information on basic human services available in the county including rent assistance, medical services, employment services, childcare activities and providers, and so much more. The 2-1-1 call is fast, free, and confidential, and is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The Stark County United Way will service all Coshocton County phone calls. Lyn Jacobs, United Way Board President, said, “This is something we have been excited about for a while.” The mayor of Coshocton, Steve Mercer, made the first 2-1-1 call in the county. “It’s an addition to the community I think will be very helpful,” he said. Refreshments were served after the call was made including punch and cookies made by Katie Hultz.
