About This Directory

Per 2-1-1 San Diego’s Alliance of Information and Referral Systems (AIRS) accreditation, we provide an accurate and real-time database of more than 6,000 resources and programs to the San Diego County community. Please note that this is only a paper copy of 2-1-1 San Diego’s Access and Functional Needs online resources that is

maintained by an AIRS certified Resource Center staff member. Please not that this paper copy is validated as of October 18, 2011, and the information it contains may have been updated and changed since that date.

This directory focuses on services, resources and information for the Access and Functional Needs community. This directory is aimed to provide information on preparedness, response and recovery during times of disaster for those individuals who may have additional needs before, during and after an incident in the functional needs area.

Who is Our Access and Functional Needs Community

In order to remain consistent with FEMA and the California Emergency Management Agency, Access and Functional Needs Populations are defined as those whose members may have additional needs before, during and after an incident in functional areas, including but not limited to: maintaining independence, communication, transportation, supervision, and medical care. Individuals in need of additional response assistance may include those who have disabilities, live in

institutionalized settings, are elderly, are children, are from diverse cultures, have limited English proficiency, or are non-English speaking, or are transportation disadvantaged. An individual with a disability is defined by the ADA as a person who had a physical or mental

impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities, a person who has a history or record of such an impairment, or a person who is perceived by others as having such an impairment. The ADA does not specifically name all of the impairments that are covered.

Calling 2-1-1 for Support

2-1-1 San Diego is a 24/7 stigma-free and confidential phone service dedicated to connecting people with community, health, and disaster services. When you call 2-1-1 San Diego, you are connected with a highly trained Client Service Representative (CSR) who can navigate the complex system, prescreen you for possible program and benefit eligibility, and connect you to the best military or veterans resources and benefit information based on branch of service, status of service including veterans and active duty, and by category, such as behavioral health, education and employment, and financial assistance.

How We Serve Our Community

Every hour of every day, someone in San Diego County searches for services, from substance abuse treatment to care for a child or aging parent, food, housing or financial assistance. With more than 6,000 health and human service programs provided by more than 2,000 community agencies, finding help can seem insurmountable. 2-1-1 is the first call for help.

(6)

through a free, 24/7 stigma-free phone service and searchable online database. 2-1-1 serves the entire population of San Diego County as the only free, confidential, dialing code service in San Diego. By using the power of technology and innovation, 2-1-1 San Diego connects people to the help they need.

By dialing 2-1-1, clients are linked to a live highly-trained Client Service

Representatives (CSR) who will navigate them through their situations by assessing

their needs and then matching them to the best and closest resource in their community. Assistance is confidential and offered in more than 150 languages. 2-1-1’s highly trained CSRs, the majority of whom are Alliance of Information and Referral Systems (AIRS)-certified, provide a wide range of immediate resources to local individuals and families.

In addition to how we serve people in our community every day, we are also the first place to call during a disaster or emergency situation for information. In order to maintain the “2-1-1” dialing code

designated to us by the Public Utilities Commission (PUC), we must act as the 24/7 disaster information line for our community. This function was tested first when Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans in August 2005; although this was not a local disaster, 2-1-1s across the United States mobilized to assist people in Louisiana as well as people in other states who were looking for loved ones or were interested in volunteering. Again, in October 2007, our disaster response functions were put to the test, this time in the largest scale disaster our County had seen in decades. Since 2007, 2-1-1 San Diego has responded to multiple local and national emergencies of all scales.

2-1-1’s Disaster Response Function

During a disaster, 2-1-1 works closely with the County of San Diego's Office of Emergency Services (OES) to provide public information to the community, rumor control and trend analysis to County officials, report community needs that are not being met, and act as the central communications point for other community agencies and non-governmental organizations.

During times of disaster, the environment that we operate in can be very different. The County of San Diego responds to emergencies as the SanDiego Operational Area (SDOA) comprising the entire area of San Diego County. All requests for mutual aid among governmental jurisdictions are funneled through the SDOA Emergency Operations Center (EOC). That EOC is also responsible to seek assistance from the state, and through the state, the federal government for resources that cannot be provided from within the SDOA.

"Thank you all for your

excellent services and

patience that I've had

every time I've called

for needs assistance.

Every time I call, my experience is top-notch.

You are such great help!"

(7)

EOC will be activated at an appropriate level. During Level II or Level III activation, 2-1-1 San Diego will send a representative to the SDOA JIC that is normally located at the SDOA EOC. That representative will provide a face-to-face presence in the JIC, represent 2-1-1 San Diego interests, and relay information

concerning JIC and SDOA EOC requirements and activities to 2-1-1 San Diego.

2-1-1 San Diego will strive to continue to provide appropriate information and referral services during and following a disaster through the following means:

• Current facilities will be assessed for habitability and used to

• the maximum extent possible consistent with staff safety. The facility is currently undergoing

extensive hardening to ensure its continued functionality in the case of a disaster. In the event of the facility being uninhabitable, operations will be shifted to one of multiple offsite

redundant locations or at-home agents will be activated.

• If call volume exceeds the current staff capability to answer, staff will be expanded by extending

shifts from 8 to 12 hours and by activating the 2-1-1 Disaster Response

Team (DRT) volunteers. 2-1-1 San Diego also has the ability to offload calls to partner 2-1-1 agencies throughout California and may exercise this if call volume is unmanageable after DRT is activated.

• The Resource Center will determine the status and capability of service providers following a

disaster and provide updated information. They will also actively search out and document specific emergency-related services that may be temporarily available as a result of the emergency.

• Rumor Control activities will consist of identification of potential rumors and trends in calls by

the Telephone Center based on caller inquiries and to relay appropriate information to the SDOA EOC through the JIC.

• Provide continuing information as specified by the SDOA to non-governmental organizations

participating in the response through appropriate means depending on the situation and number of organizations involved.

• Maintain documentation of all incremental expenses related to the emergency to substantiate

any reimbursement requests or supplemental fund-raising following the emergency period.

• When an emergency occurs outside of usual office hours, San Diego Office of Emergency

Services (OES) will notify 2-1-1 San Diego of requirements through pre-designated communications means consisting of a 2-1-1 San Diego Duty Manager. When a disaster threatens or occurs, the 2-1-1 San Diego management team will convene as quickly as possible to assess the situation and activate this plan when required. While this plan is activated, 2-1-1 San Diego will organize and operate as outlined in the Roles and Responsibilities discussed in the Disaster Structure section.
