Published on March 4, 2014

There will be a Kings County voice on the board of directors of the 211 information and referral service.

Warden Diana Brothers has been chosen to represent the Union of Nova Scotia Municipalities on the board for 211 Nova Scotia, a non-profit dedicated to connecting people with information and services, enhancing social infrastructure and encouraging engagement within communities. Dialing 211 or visiting the 211 website, quickly connects users to their community and the social services they need, anywhere in the province.

Brothers says she is excited to be part of the organization for a three-year term.

“I look forward to working with the Board on behalf of UNSM and the County of Kings,” Brothers says. “I think my experience with inclusivity and diversity will be an asset to the board as we shape the future of the 211 service in Nova Scotia.”

According to 211 Nova Scotia, the service was used by 70,000 Nova Scotians in its first year of service to find information on financial assistance, housing and utilities, seniors’ services and home care, family programs, government assistance, mental health support and much more.
