I present my first in hopefully what will become another large photographic series. This photo is of a charming little champ, Evan. I captured this photo while volunteering my time at a local nonprofit event to promote 2-1-1. I setup a “photo booth” and took portraits of individuals and families as part of the event festivities. The goal of the photo booth was to drive social media traffic to the agency by making them available very quickly on Facebook. I had a great time participating in such a fun event for the second year in a row. The folks at HeartLine are active in the community working to make a difference. They are one of two Oklahoma nonprofit agencies that answer the 2-1-1 line.
2-1-1 is a free, 24-hour phone service that provides Oklahomans access to information about health and human services, simply by dialing 2-1-1. Call Specialists listen carefully to callers and make an in-depth assessment and referral plan, providing callers with one or more options to meet their needs. The highly trained Call Specialists at 2-1-1 are available seven days a week, 365 days a year. An average of 1 in 5 households in Oklahoma utilizes 2-1-1 for access to basic human needs such food, clothes, shelter, health care, and mental health care.
