Multi-Agency Resource Centers Opening in Wimberley and San Marcos

Red Cross, Central Texas VOAD, Hays County and neighboring counties team up to help families impacted by floods

The American Red Cross, Central Texas Voluntary Organizations Active in Disasters (VOAD) and Hays and neighboring Counties are joining forces to open two Multi-Agency Resource Centers for anyone impacted by the severe storms and flooding. At the resource centers, people can sit down one-on-one with Red Cross workers to begin their recovery process, plus meet other relief organizations offering recovery assistance.  

WIMBERLEY – Hays County Facilitated Resource Center Friday, May 29th & Saturday, May 30th 8:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m. Wimberley Community Center 14068 Ranch Rd 12 Wimberley, TX

SAN MARCOS – Red Cross Facilitated Resource Center Sunday, May 31st & Monday, June 1st 8:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m. St. John Catholic Church Claretian Hall 624 E. Hopkins, San Marcos, TX

Recovering from a disaster can be a confusing process and it’s not always easy for people to find the help they need. The resource centers will bring all of the nonprofit organizations and government agencies together in one convenient location to provide support. Clean up supplies, hot meals, emotional counseling and health services will also be available at the resource centers.

About the American Red Cross: The American Red Cross shelters, feeds and provides emotional support to victims of disasters; supplies about 40 percent of the nation’s blood; teaches skills that save lives; provides international humanitarian aid; and supports military members and their families. The Red Cross is a not-for-profit organization that depends on volunteers and the generosity of the American public to perform its mission.

    Is there a location in Rockport Texas or in close proximity where I may go for training, for recent and future disasters. We are watching the Wimberley and San Marcos flood disaster. We go the Kyle about every other week and I a small business owner, have good financial, organization and communication skills, and am bilingual.
    Thank you
