    DISASTER RELIEF INFORMATION
    Rapides Parish Announcement
    Labor Day Weekend Update: Friday 9/4/20 - Monday 9/7/20

    Hello Rapides Parish community partners, advocates, and service providers! Our desire is to help facilitate and extend communication on resources available to aid our community due to the impact of Hurricane Laura. With your participation, we can help provide timely information to the people that need it most. Please email Chrislyn@fosteringcommunity.org with any known meal/supply/service distribution location and/or resource link. We will work to get this information out via email, social media, and boots on the ground as we receive it.

    Our thoughts are with each of you as you personally recover and help serve families through this challenging time. If there is one thing 2020 has shown us, it's that Rapides parish is resilient. 
    2020 has also shown us that the children and families in Rapides parish need us to partner together like never before.

    Please check out the resources below we have for today (provided by Charlene at CASA). Share this information with your loved ones, colleagues and the people you serve.
