Center To Help Fire, Flood Victims On South Coast To Change Focus From Short To Long Term Aid

Feb 2, 2018

A South Coast center focused on helping fire and flood victims is changing its focus, as it moves from helping people with immediate issues to long term concerns like help with rebuilding.

The Disaster Recovery Center, at the Calvary Chapel Church in Santa Barbara, will have teams of state and local officials on hand to help with everything from unemployment to applying for federal grants, and loans.

It will continue to operate as the Local Recovery and Assistance Center from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. tomorrow. Monday, it will reopen at 9 a.m. as the Disaster Recovery Center.
