Defending Childhood logoOn September 28, 2012, in Cleveland, OH, Attorney General Eric Holder announced that the Department of Justice (DOJ) and key stakeholders will partner with the United Way's 2-1-1 "call-for-service" line to identify and assist children exposed to violence. The 2-1-1 community access line, which connects the public with human services, will now give citizens access to screening, assessment, and treatment services for children who have been victims of or witnesses to violence.
