LEWISTON – FIRST CALL, United Way’s information and referral hotline, is a vital link between people in need and services available in Androscoggin, Franklin and Oxford counties.

Working from an extensive list of resources, the volunteers who staff the phones at FIRST CALL can direct a caller to the best place to get help and information on health and human service agencies in the communities.

The FIRST CALL service is open to anyone, regardless of age, and is free; calls are confidential. Phone lines are open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday at 795-6677 or toll free at 1-800-339-4042.
