"I think it's so important that our  residents have easy access to  informaƟon regarding social services  and resources available to them in our  area,” said DeSoto Mayor ProTem  Rachel Proctor.  “Many valuable  resources out there oŌen go unused,  not because there isn't a need for them  but because the people that need them  aren't aware they exist. That's why we, 

2‐1‐1 Texas is commiƩed to helping  Texas ciƟzens connect with the services  they need.  Whether by phone or  internet, the goal is to present  accurate, well‐organized and easy‐to‐ find informaƟon from state and local  health and human services programs.    In addiƟon to their website, 2‐1‐1  Texas operates a free, anonymous,  social services hotline available 24  hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a  year that can be reached by dialing 2‐1‐ 1 or 877‐541‐7905.    “I also want to urge social service  providers and non‐profit organizaƟons  in DeSoto to register with 2‐1‐1 Texas  so our residents can be referred to  services in their local area,” said  Proctor.  InformaƟon on how to register your  non‐profit community or social service  organizaƟon with 2‐1‐1 Texas is posted  on the City’s website.  Just click on the  Community Resources page under E‐ Services on the homepage.    “I'm excited to know that such a simple  soluƟon exists to meet a myriad of  needs for our community,” said Mayor  Pro Tem Proctor.

as a City,  put forth  the effort  to bring  awareness  to the Texas 2‐1‐1 program.”
