Endorsements for United Way’s 2-1-1
“The numbers clearly show the importance of United Way of Westchester and Putnam and its 2-1-1 helpline. When people need a program or service and they don’t know where to go, I now start telling people 2-1-1. 2-1-1 represents an excellent return on the county’s investment – we’re talking dollars in this kind of economy. Our partnership has saved county tax payers millions of dollars. 2-1-1 Call Specialists save us more than $100,000 a year.”
Rob Astorino, Westchester County Executive
“Every call that comes in here frees a county worker to do something else. 2-1-1 is the model of private-public partnerships - shared technology, shared services and it’s saving taxpayer dollars. It’s a wonderful thing.” Peter Harckham, County Legislator (pictured with County Legislator, Judy Myers and Naomi Adler on 2-1-1 day)
“When 9-1-1 isn’t the answer, 2-1-1 gets the answer. I could not ask for a better set of individuals to work with on this and I could not ask for a better service for all of us.” - Assemblyman Robert Castelli
