At Mile High United Way, we believe that when individuals and families have access to accurate, trustworthy information, especially in times of uncertainty, they are in a better position to be financially self-sufficient and care for themselves and their families.

For Coloradoans with immigration- and refugee-related questions, Mile High United Way’s 2-1-1 Help Center continues to provide trustworthy information and referrals to all.

We created the Know Your Rights video in response to a specific need we identified working with our diverse community. In the video, Rodolfo José Cárdenas explains the difference between Guardianship and Power of Attorney in Spanish with English subtitles. This is not legal advice, but rather is accurate information gathered from respected, reputable sources in Colorado.

Each day, thousands of people across North America turn to 2-1-1 for free, confidential information and support—whether financial, social, health or disaster-related.

Mile High United Way’s 2-1-1 Help Center is committed to being the first, most essential, confidential resource to anyone who needs help, whether in times of natural disaster or personal need.

Every member of the community is welcome to call 2-1-1 for resources, questions, and to find the most accurate and confidential l information relevant to their situation.

Mile High United Way’s trained 2-1-1 community navigators are multi-lingual and provide free and confidential assistance to those who dial 2-1-1, 303-561-2111, or our toll free line, 800-760-6489 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. The community can also access the 2-1-1 database through the 211Colorado mobile app, by searching online, or by talking with a specialist at UnitedWayDenver.org/211, or by texting your zip code to 898-211.
