For Immediate Release: Oct. 10, 2011
Flood Recovery Network will canvass flood-affected neighborhoods
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The Flood Recovery Network, a program of The Tennessee Conference of The United Methodist Church, will be canvassing flood-affected neighborhoods starting Oct. 11 to determine where flood survivors still need help and what kind of help they need.
The canvassing effort aims to provide help to flood survivors who still may be struggling to recover. Canvassers will begin this effort in Madison and Donelson, two areas where Flood Recovery Network case managers have found a higher density of outstanding need. This canvass also seeks to provide help to flood survivors who began the recovery process on their own but need additional resources to complete their recovery. As time and resources allow, canvassers will move on to other flood-affected neighborhoods throughout the city.
The Flood Recovery Network provides case management to flood victims and helps them get the resources they need to recover. The Network is working in coordination with the Nashville Mayor’s Office and The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee.
Canvassing will take place through mid-November. Canvassers will be wearing badges identifying their affiliation with the Flood Recovery Network. Verizon Wireless contributed 21 tablet computers and wireless Internet service to assist in the canvassing.
Any flood survivor in need of recovery assistance is encouraged to call The Flood Recovery Network at 615-567-3232.
