New Hanover County, NC – Additional resources will be available at New Hanover County’s Hurricane Florence Recovery Coordination Office beginning Wednesday, February 27. North Carolina Emergency Management (NCEM) and Hope4NC partners, who have been located in the Disaster Recovery Center at Independence Mall, will move to the Northeast Library at 1241 Military Cutoff Road, in an area next to the hurricane recovery office.
NCEM Individual Assistance Specialists and Housing Specialists have been helping residents navigate FEMA and receive assistance as a result of Hurricane Florence; and Hope4NC Crisis Counseling has been providing crisis counseling and connecting survivors to resources for continued support. Both partners will move from Independence Mall and begin serving the public from their new space at the county’s hurricane recovery office on Wednesday.
“We want to make accessing state and local resources as easy as possible for our residents, and having our partners co-located with the Hurricane Florence Recovery Coordination Office will help us do that,” said New Hanover County Chief Strategy Officer and Hurricane Florence Recovery Manager Beth Schrader. “Individuals will be able to get help with FEMA assistance and housing benefits, or seek support from Hope4NC, then walk down the hall to check on Hazard Mitigation Grant Programs and other resources at the hurricane recovery office.”
Beginning Wednesday, hours of operation for these hurricane recovery services are Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. To contact the Hurricane Florence Recovery Coordination Office, call 910-798-7007 or visit HurricaneRecovery.NHCgov.com.
