Help for those displaced from the Gulf Coast
- Good evening --
The Deputy Mayor for Children, Youth, Families and Elders has asked that I pass
this information along: There are a number of individuals and families from the
Gulf Coast who have arrived in DC -- many are are staying with family and friends.
Help for them is available by calling the District's resource and referral line,
Answers, Please!, at 211 (or 202-463-6211) or by calling the American Red Cross of
the National Capital Area at 303-4522. The Red Cross is coordinating a host of
services for those who have been displaced. Services include health, mental
health, clothing, etc.
Please share this with those who have taken in those from the Gulf Coast.
