The recent severe storms and flooding have created massive destruction in seven states from the Southwest to the Midwest to the East. More than 20 people have been killed and many more are missing. Dozens of counties have been declared disaster areas and thousands of people have been displaced from their homes.
The Society of St. Vincent de Paul will be providing some first-response services, and will continue its primary role of long-term recovery efforts. Immediate needs include assistance with temporary housing, prescription medications, gasoline, childcare and other medical needs. Long-term recovery efforts will include the House in the Box® and case management services to help families and individuals recover from these disasters.
