Gary Madden, Director of San Bernardino County's 211

For some, a life in the non-profit world is a straight path. For others, like Gary Madden, it takes years and clear indications that a change of direction is required. With his motto to be “an expression of light and joy and unconditional love to all” he comes into contact with, Gary presently serves as Director of San Bernardino County’s 211.

211 is a national call center that connects those in need with crucial resources. It is the central source for providing free and confidential information and referrals for all health and human services. Community Resource Advisors offer helpful information about financial, domestic, health, or disaster-related situations 24 hours a day, every day.
