Harris County has opened a temporary Disaster Recovery Center in Kingwood at the United Methodist Church, 1799 Woodland Hills Drive, Room K105. Hours will be from 9 to 6 weekdays and 9 to 1 this coming Saturday. The Center will close for Memorial Day on May 27.
“Resource Navigators” Will Help Flood Victims Find Help They Need
Early May flooding, while tragic, was not widespread enough to meet the requirements for a disaster declaration. So in the absence of a federal declaration, Harris County Community Services Department is referring individuals to multiple local resources – primarily churches and non-profits – that can provide assistance.
Harris County’s Community Services Department will use their Resource Navigators who handle similar requests on a daily basis.
Save Time While Seeking Help
Red Cross still remains the primary responder in the absence of a federal declaration. Community Services is only trying to assemble and refer to local providers who have capacity to assist. The county will hook you up with the people they’ve found through this Disaster Recovery Center.
Eligibility will depend on individual providers for specific requirements. But the Resource Navigators should be able to help you with those. Think of them as a way to save time while seeking help.
