In January, Wyoming 211 launched a brand new website with innovative functionalities that we wanted to draw your attention to. We knew it was important to add these enhanced features to provide a better client experience and to make it easier for our Wyoming neighbors to find information about health and human resources available to them.
In the bottom right corner of our homepage is the accessibility menu button. This new accessibility tool can change the viewing of the Wyoming 211 website by making the text bigger, widen the text spacing, pause animations and adapt to be dyslexia friendly. A more accessible website can offer an improved experience for all of our users.
Don’t speak or read English? That’s not a problem anymore. We have a new translation button that can change our website’s language to ten different languages, including but not limited to Spanish, Russian and German.
Our new search engine is much improved. After adding a location, our clients will be offered a list of curated questions based on past information and referrals given in that specific city or surrounding area. Wyomingites are often overwhelmed while trying to navigate the health and human resources available in our state. This new function will help them in their search for what they need.
Are you one of the service providers in our database of resources? You can now update your organization’s information right from our website. Need to make changes to your hours of operation or did you add a new service that we should know about? Update your service provider page by accessing your record right from our website.
Would you like to know how many people live in a particular ZIP code, county or legislative district? Are you interested in what issues your local community is in need of? We have near real-time data 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. We are here to help you.
You may now also request Wyoming 211 marketing materials, make inquiries that get sent directly to 211 staff, and review past quarterly data reports all from our website.
