For 41 years, Eden I&R has been successfully fulfilling its mission of "linking people and resources" by consistently and creatively responding to the community's changing needs. The agency's largest program is 2-1-1 Alameda County, the free, multilingual, 3-digit phone number, available 24/7, that provides critical housing, health, and human service information and referrals.
"I am currently homeless, residing between Oakland and Berkeley. I called 2-1-1 for the first time today and got five or six different referrals. I wish I had found 2-1-1 sooner. I have been suffering for the last two weeks, just looking for help. 2-1-1 helped me tremendously…you really helped a lot. Thank you very much and I hope you have a good day." -- 2-1-1 caller
"I appreciate you calling me periodically for (rental unit) updates. My tenants have been with me for years and they all were referred to me by 2-1-1!" -- A property owner in Eden I&R's housing database
