There are seven remaining households in the FEMA program, all of whom will be housed by October 2021 – the three-year anniversary of Hurricane Michael. Doorways will assist each of these clients with rental and utility deposits, as well as first and last month’s rent, which will give them a huge head start to become self-sufficient. Three of the households were assisted with replacement identification cards and all will receive a welcome basket with much needed household items upon move in.
The Community Resource Center (CRC) - formerly the Community Recovery Center:
The CRC continues to see a large number of residents. Since Doorways took over operations of the CRC in May 2019, we have assisted 5, 300 residents over 85% of whom were impacted by Hurricane Michael; 92% of those survivors resided in Bay County, the hardest hit of the six counties we serve. Housing remains the most highly requested assistance. The CRC move to a new location has been postponed. We anticipate moving in the next two-three months. In addition, we assisted 25 additional hurricane survivors with ID replacement, food, security deposits and bus tickets to relocate near family outside the area.
