First Call for Help

     For many people needing services, United Way is often the
place to start. By calling First Call for Help, individuals can
receive information and referrals to dozens of agencies ranging
from AIDS to domestic violence, job training to senior, disabled
or youth services.

     First Call for Help is a 24-hour, seven-day-a-week hotline
providing free access to all types of health and human service
information. Staff and volunteers provide caring, confidential
answers to personal questions with the aid of an automated
resource file. Last year, the hotline fielded 55,000 calls.

     First Call for Help can be reached by dialing (410) 685-0525
or 1-800-492-0618 for those out of area; TDD call (410) 685-2159.
It is just another of the many innovative public services made
possible by your contribution to the United Way of Central
