Athens County 211 call center
(2008-09-24)
(WOUB) - United Appeal for Athens County is working to establish a 2-1-1 call center for Athens, Muskingum, Perry and Morgan Counties.

United Appeal Executive Director Pam Harvey says she and officials of United Way from the other three counties hope to have the center running by January.

In Athens, Care Line used to provide information about community services, local organizations and government agencies, but it went out of business in 2003.

A grant from Ohio United Way is taking care of start-up costs.

However, the four counties will need to pay the bills over the long term.
