Flagler County Will Open Assistance Center For Irma Recovery Information

By on September 12, 2017 in WNDB News

Palm Coast, FL – Flagler County is opening an Assistance Center Wednesday to help residents obtain information in the wake of Hurricane Irma.

The Center is being opened ahead of a potential FEMA Disaster Center. It will be housed at the Palm Coast Branch Library, 2500 Palm Coast Parkway NW, and it will be open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Wednesday through Friday.

Multiple agencies will be represented at the Assistance Center to include United Way, Stewart-Marchman-Act Behavioral Healthcare, American Red Cross, Flagler County Health Department, Flagler County Human Services, Flagler County Senior Services, Flagler Volunteer Services, Flagler County Homebuilder’s Association, Department of Children and Families, and FEMA (once they arrive).

Residents will be pre-screened for necessary services, and provided counseling. Assistance will be predominantly for families with flooded or damaged houses.

Homes with just a loss of power and potential loss of food are not planned to be accommodated at the Flagler County Assistance Center. Food vouchers/cards will NOT be provided. Most grocery stores are now open. Flagler County will issue information about open food pantries as it becomes available.

“We are doing everything we can to help our residents,” says Flagler County Administrator Craig Coffey. “People are already stressed out, and it can be a daunting task to figure out the next step. We are here to offer whatever support we can.”

Those without transportation who need a ride should call Flagler County Transportation Department at 386-313-4100.
