211 Resource Referral Service

At one time, this blog tried to find services for seniors in Walnut Creek and list the link.  That was before I discovered 211.  They are doing the same thing, and providing live help instead of a link.

211 is a comprehensive source of locally curated social services information.

They are local experts who’s goal is to make finding help easier. Trained specialists are available 24/7 to help you access the best local resources and services to address any need.
