FAIRMONT, W.Va. – From now on, when Marion County residents dial 2-1-1, they’ll probably hear the voice of Chris Yost.
The number is a hotline for resource information, and Yost has been working as its operator in Marion County for a few months now. It’s his job to give callers information on aid ranging from food pantries to health care clinics.
