not limited to, service non-delivery, fraud, misrepresentation, discrimination,

that is not included in the 2-1-1 database such as locations of alcoholic
or drug dependency support groups.
4. Update Policy Most organizations listed are asked annually to complete a written questionnaire
or to update their information by telephone, fax or e-mail. In addition, the
Information Department and Regional Outreach Teams monitor service changes, and
changes are made as soon as the information is known and verified with the
service provider. Nevertheless, community services change so rapidly that some
omissions and changes are inevitable.
