Five Points Washington continuing to host MARC

Five Points Washington is continuing to host a Multi-Agency Resource Center for victims of the November 17th tornadoes. The center is a one-stop-shop for people to access disaster-related services and information.

The MARC brings together representatives from more than 20 local and state agencies. Some state agencies offering service include the departments on Aging and Human Services as well as the Department of Insurance. The American Red Cross is providing client casework, information and referrals.

Governor Pat Quinn has declared 15 counties state disaster areas, opening the door to state resources such as trucks, communications equipment and heavy equipment for debris removal. The MARC is open from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. through Tuesday.
