Hodac Helplines

Hodac facilitates three different 24/7 helplines: United Way 211, Helpline Georgia for Substance Abuse, and Georgia Crime Victim Assistance Helpline.


When you need solutions to address personal emergencies, United Way 2-1-1 is your 3-digit, one-stop connection. Dialing 2-1-1 connects you to information and trained referral specialists who have access to a comprehensive database of thousands of resources that can best meet a caller’s needs.

If you have an emergency, specialists can refer you to local food banks, clothing closets, shelters, rent & utility assistance, and more.

Physical & mental health resources are also available: affordable insurance programs, medical lines, support groups, counseling programs, drug & alcohol intervention, rehabilitation, employment support, tax and other financial assistance, transportation, support for those with disabilities, adult day centers, Meals on Wheels programs, home health care, support for families, mentors and tutorial services, and more.

2-1-1 is a 24/7 helpline. It serves Baldwin, Bibb, Crawford, Hancock, Houston, Jasper, Jones, Macon, Monroe, Peach, Putnam, Twiggs, Washington and Wilkinson counties. Bilingual staff and the AT&T Language Line provide multi-lingual assistance. You can also access the online database by going to www.irissoft.com/hoda/.
