Today, the City of St. Louis is reminding residents of upcoming Multi-Agency Resource Center (MARC) opportunities in the St. Louis region, including in the City of St. Louis. Stood up by the State of Missouri, these are one-stop locations for flood survivors that provide trained experts in areas like housing, insurance, food stamp replacement, mental health counseling, and other critical areas of need.
“The City of St. Louis is in constant contact with our partners at every level of government to help provide relief to our residents,” said Mayor Tishaura O. Jones. “St. Louisans impacted by flooding should visit any of the available MARC locations to get connected to legal services, insurance information, and more.”
The City of St. Louis MARC will be held at Friendly Temple Church at 5515 Dr. Martin Luther King Drive. The center will be open on Friday, August 5, 2022, from 3:00 pm - 8:00 pm and Saturday, August 6, 2022, from 10:00 am - 5:00 pm.
The other regional locations this week include:
- Wednesday, August 3, 2022, 3:00 pm - 8:00 pm

315 Howdershell Road, Florissant, MO 63031
- Thursday, August 4, 3:00 pm - 8:00 pm
