Still Need Flood Recovery Help? BRACE Wants To Know!

World Renew

It's been four months since the floods and there are still people in the region looking for help to recover. BRACE, the Be Ready Alliance Coordinating for Emergencies is hosting a national disaster recovery group to help find some of those people. Greg Strader is the Executive Director of BRACE says many of the people who still need help are living in low income housing and may not have been aware of the assistance available.

World Renew, the organization that is conducting the interviews, was formerly known as C.R.W.R.C. They are a faith based organization that is no stranger to the region. They helped with damage assessment in the weeks after Hurricane Ivan.

Greg Strader says that World Renew is meeting with people to determine the amount of assistance that is still needed in the region four months after the floods. With that information, Strader says that BRACE will be able to help families that may have fallen through the cracks and not gotten the assistance they need to recover from the flood.
