Individuals in-need of flood recovery help should call United Way’s 2-1-1
Columbia, S.C. – Victims of the October 2015 Flood who are in need of assistance are now able to dial SC 2-1-1, United Way’s statewide Information and Referral phone line, and have their information entered into the Disaster Case Management Coordinated System.
Hearts & Hands Disaster Recovery is now the primary provider of Disaster Case Management services throughout the state and will use the information provided by 2-1-1 to serve those in-need of long-term recovery assistance.
“The Midlands Flood Recovery Group has been working diligently on streamlining the flood recovery process for those affected,” said Mac Bennett, United Way of the Midlands President and CEO. “With SC 2-1-1 now starting the intake process, a huge piece of the puzzle has been solved which enables us to more quickly identify and serve those who are still recovering from this disaster.”
Individuals or households with unmet needs due to the flood or storm damage are encouraged to contact 2-1-1 (option #7) to be linked to new disaster case management services.
SC 2-1-1 is a service of United Way Association of South Carolina. The disaster case management intake service was made possible through a grant from the South Carolina Department of Employment and Workforce.
