Hurricane Florence Disaster Resources: Connecting Community

Dealing with downed trees, damaged homes, destroyed vehicles, and property loss is stressful enough. Finding information to connect with the resources you need shouldn't add to that stress. Without fully charged devices, and limited internet connectivity or access to electric, just starting is daunting.

You will need to begin the process of finding information on resources and services, registering, and being informed.
