What are the most pressing needs in your community?
The Health Communication Research Laboratory at the Brown School at Washington University in St. Louis developed the 211 Counts tool and monitors data collected. The HCRL team has been closely monitoring the impacts of COVID-19 and has written a series of articles since the pandemic began in the U.S. in March 2020.

Would you like to know how many people told Wyoming 211 they need help with food, shelter or other basic needs in the past year, the past month or even yesterday?
Would you like to know how many of those people live in a particular ZIP code, county or legislative district?
Near real-time data is now available via an initiative called 211 Counts, which Wyoming 211 joined in early 2019. A “dashboard” at wy.211counts.org can be customized to help document community needs and create reports for use by governments, nonprofits, service providers or anyone with an interest in community well-being.
