Individual Assistance and Emotional Support Available

The American Red Cross will open a Service Center on Sunday, December 9 to provide assistance to individuals and families affected by the Washington flood. This center will allow people who live in affected areas to meet one-on-one with a Red Cross caseworker to discuss their immediate emergency disaster-caused needs.

Location:

Bethel Church

132 Kirkland Road

Chehalis, WA 98532

Hours of Operation:

Sunday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Monday through Saturday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

At Red Cross service centers, trained relief workers — including nurses, crisis counselors and caseworkers — will talk confidentially with residents affected by the flood. The Red Cross may be able to help disaster victims with the means to pay for what they need most: groceries, clothing, rent and essential household items. Additionally, Red Cross health nurses assess sanitary conditions, assist with disaster-related minor injuries and illnesses and may help victims replace eyeglasses, dentures, hearing aids or prescriptions lost in the disaster. Individuals or families who apply to the Red Cross for assistance must bring with them some form of identification showing their address, as proof that they lived in the area affected by the disaster. Those who are unable to get to the service center can call the Red Cross disaster assistance hotline at 1-866-GET-INFO.
