Community Resources

While Pitt Community College would like to be able to meet all the needs of our students, there are many situations where outside resources are needed.  There are many community service providers and organizations in Pitt County designed to serve people during times of need. 

NC 2-1-1

2-1-1 is HELP when you need it most. This website is a resource for finding community health and human service resources. The first step in finding help is knowing who to call.  9-1-1 is for emergencies. 4-1-1 is for directory assistance. 2-1-1 is a call center with experts waiting to connect you with a network of over 18,000 resources here in North Carolina.
