Tips for Searching the Database

Tips for Searching the NC 2-1-1 Resource Database

Use Search Buttons: To see results for the most common searches, choose one of the nine search buttons on the home page

Less is More: Your search will work better if you put fewer words into the search bar. For example, instead of typing the formal name of an organization or program, just type a word or two to prompt the search.

Limit the Geography: To limit the scope of your search, go ahead and indicate the county or zip code area you wish to search.

Print Your Results: Once you have narrowed down your results, feel free to print the ones you need. Select “Print a PDF” in the yellow box on your screen, click on “Make PDF,” then click “Download PDF,” and then follow your normal print process.
