To streamline access to a large range of human services in rural communities as there have been problems in the past for these regions to access human services. Note: The proponent was one year into their business plan for implementation of 211 in southwest Alberta, when the national office of the United Way, changed the model for implementation of 211 services in Canada.

Therefore, the project continued with designing a "made in rural Alberta" 211 information and referral implementation and service delivery model.
