Flood Assistance Contact Information

232-HELP

*An information hotline where they can direct you to proper resources for any needs you
have: shelters, food, clothing, supplies, FEMA, insurance claims, etc. They can also walk you through the process of registering with FEMA, or how to properly file insurance claims

* Phone: 337-232- 4357

* Website: http://www.232-help.org

* 232-HELP is looking for people to help with their hotline, especially after flooding goes down and people need assistance with FEMA

* You may also donate and they use their funds to help someone in an emergency, not long term; i.e., they bought an elderly woman her meds the other day after she was evacuated

FEMA

* Assessment Hotline: 1-800- 621-3362 and 1-800- 829-3676
