A Multi-Agency Resource Center (MARC) will be available for residents of Lincoln and Pike Counties who have been impacted by the recent flooding in the area. 

For those unfamiliar with the term, a Multi-Agency Resource Center is where government agencies, humanitarian and service organizations and similar entities come together at one location so that people who need the services or information offered by those groups can find it in a single location instead of having to travel to several different places.

The center will be open at Winfield High School (3920 East Highway 47) on Monday, July 1 from 11 a.m.-7 p.m. and Tuesday, July 2 from 8 a.m.-2 p.m.

Individuals and families applying for assistance are reminded to bring identification and verification of address to be eligible for assistance from some agencies.

The American Red Cross has also established a number for residents in Missouri and adjoining Illinois counties impacted by recent flooding to report damage and receive information for Red Cross recovery resources.  The number is answered 24/7.  

Residents should call (314) 516-2769.

Callers will be asked to provide their name, address and contact information. 

They will receive a follow-up call from a Red Cross volunteer. 

The volunteer will aid the caller in the development of an individualized recovery plan and inform them of available resources from partner agencies.
