Multi-Agency Resource Centers

To assist families impacted by flooding and severe storms, Multi-Agency Resource Centers (MARCs) in the St. Louis region have been organized by the Missouri State Emergency Management Agency (SEMA), the Missouri Governor’s Faith-Based and Community Service Partnership (The Partnership), Missouri Voluntary Agencies Active in Disaster (MOVOAD), the St. Louis Area and St. Charles Community Organizations Active in Disaster (COAD), local volunteer and faith-based organizations, and other state/local agencies. MARCs are one-stop shops that pull together recovery resources in communities impacted by disasters.

Multi-Agency Resource Centers provide services to households with American Red Cross-verified flood damage in homes and apartments. Some agencies have the ability to provide emergency financial assistance based on verified flood damage. Additional assistance includes food stamp replacement services, insurance information, legal services, and other disaster-related services.

The partner agencies in the MARC are unable to provide assistance for flood damage to non-living quarters, including storage areas, unfinished areas and garages, regardless of appliances or HVAC systems being located there.

Agencies at the MARC can only assist individuals and families, not businesses. Individuals are asked to bring photo identification showing address and proof of residence to be eligible for assistance from some agencies. If ID has been lost due to flooding, the Resource Centers will assist residents with information on how to replace IDs and other important paperwork.

Individuals who may need transportation to and from the MARC can call 2-1-1; those with other unmet needs or who are unable to attend one of the MARCs can visit http://211helps.org for resources.
