A 2-1-1 Community Resource Advocate is here to help / Coordinador de recursos comunitarios esta aquí para ayudar

Edmonds College and Verdant has collaborated to bring a 2-1-1 Community Resource Advocate (CRA) to campus. The 2-1-1 CRA is bilingual in English and Spanish and serves as a single point of contact for South Snohomish community members to learn about various college and community resources and assistance via phone and in one-on-one meetings with students and community members.

The 2-1-1 CRA's office is in Brier Hall, 261, in the Center for Student Engagement and Leadership office (Brier 252).  

Leo's in-person hours:

Tuesday: 3:30-5:30 p.m.
Wednesday: 11 a.m.-4 p.m.
Thursday: 12-3 p.m.

Need help and do not know where to turn?

If you live in Snohomish County and are in need of help due to an emergency, have multiple service needs, are struggling to advocate on your own behalf, or are unable to find the help you need, the 2-1-1 CRA could help with rent assistance, job training, food, shelter, or support groups.

View the Volunteers of America North Sound 2-1-1 brochure to learn more about these services.
