The Contra Costa Crisis Center manages an extraordinary database of useful resources and information for County residents. You can access social service and health information 24 hours a day, seven days a week, by calling the three digit, toll-free number "211" from any phone. Nearly 700 agencies and organizations contribute to provide more than 1,600 services and programs to County residents in need via the 211 database.
Each month, 211 Contra Costa receives more than 3,500 calls from County residents who need help.
In addition to calling 211, you can access their information on the 211 Contra Costa website, and even launch a live chat session if you'd prefer. The site also has important Contra Costa County Resource guides available in English and Spanish.
