Services are grouped together into categories that include food and clothing, housing and homelessness, health, mental health and addictions, abuse and assault, children and parenting, and employment, as well as legal and financial matters. 211 Manitoba listings can also be searched to find services for youth, older adults, Indigenous people, newcomers, LGBT2SQ+ and , people with disabilities. At this time, 211 Manitoba is available online only.
