Transportation will be available through Faith Chapel for shelter residents relocating to Faith Chapel.
The Red Cross is working with each shelter resident to help them in the process of securing temporary housing. Agencies like HUD, HABD, United Way and FEMA are instrumental in this transition and the Red Cross has caseworkers helping those affected by the storms get assistance.
