2-1-1 Links Callers to Human Service Help


Barrington Area United Way is pleased to announce the launch of 2-1-1 in the Barrington 60010 communities. 

 2-1-1 is an easy to remember telephone number that connects callers to information about critical health and human services available in our community.

  2-1-1 callers will be connected with a trained and caring professional who will assess their situation, identify their needs and refer them to local resources that can help. 

 The 24-hour hotline makes it easy for residents to navigate the maze of human service providers in a free and confidential way.  2-1-1 will be available through land line and cell phone use.  

For additional information or questions, please call the Barrington Area United Way office at 847-382-8778.

On Thursday March 6th, 120 women gathered at the Onion Pub of Lake Barrington to celebrate the power of women in our community.  The 3rd Annual Power of the Purse luncheon and auction raised over $20,000 for program services in our community.  The event included a silent auction of 35 beautiful handbags and gift packages.  This year, BAUW partnered with local Barrington native, Joseph Elias who donated his signature handbag, Chosen Sport, from his collection.  This unique and fine American crafted handbag was used for the Power of the Purse Impact Raffle.
