The Government of Saskatchewan is providing $634,000 to United Way in 2023-24 to provide funding for 211 Saskatchewan and the new Re:CONNECT service, with an additional $300,000 in funding earmarked for 2024-25.

Of the funds provided, approximately $500,000 is being dedicated to Re:CONNECT (in partnership of with Women and Gender Equality Canada), and $134,000 to 211 Saskatchewan. 

" Its aim is to keep families safe, providing free therapy to those who are facing personal risk, who need additional support." Minister of Justice and Attorney General Bronwyn Eyre says, "in terms of 211 generally and the Re:CONNECT service [it's] important to highlight ... that it's confidential, it's accessible by call, by text, by online chat, including for those impacted by interpersonal violence and abuse."

This funding is part of an overall investment of $27.5 million from the Government of Saskatchewan to address interpersonal violence and abuse. 

The program is available now province wide, and offers services in 175 languages, of which 17 are Indigenous.
