How 211 helped people keep their homes after the pandemic threw them out of work
When COVID-19 threw millions out of work, threatening their ability to feed and house their families, specialists at NC 211 were there to help.
People can call, text or email 211 across the country to find support for housing and utility assistance and other social services. In 2019, the service’s representatives answered nearly 12 million calls. Because of the pandemic, the agency expects that number to double in 2020.
At a time when the impacts of COVID-19 have closed the doors of many restaurants — temporarily or permanently — Josh Diaz is busier than ever.
Diaz is the manager and owner of Piggy Blues Bar-B-Que, a restaurant that has been a part of the community in Austin, Minn., for more than 20 years. While restaurants and bars in the state are limited to takeout service only under statewide orders, the diner-less dining room in Piggy Blues has been converted into an assembly line of to-go containers.
