I started calling 211 LA when I relocated from Louisiana to Los Angeles in 2000. I was a victim of domestic violence, and I started off homeless in Los Angeles. 211 LA helped save my life. I was so depressed that I felt like I wanted to commit suicide. They gave me a 24-hour suicide prevention number and secured transportation for me to go to a mental health facility. They took me there and got me all of my medicines. I got my life together again and got a whole lot of life back thanks to 211 LA.
