Today, the City of St. Louis reminds residents of upcoming Multi-Agency Resource Center (MARC) opportunities in the St. Louis area, including the City of St. Louis. Set up by the State of Missouri, these are one-stop shops for flood survivors that provide trained experts in areas such as housing, insurance, food stamp replacement, mental health counseling and other critical areas.

“The City of St. Louis is in constant contact with our partners at all levels of government to help provide relief to our residents,” said Mayor Tishaura O. Jones. “St. Louisians affected by the floods should visit one of the available MARC locations to connect 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 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. and on Saturday August 6, 2022 from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Other regional locations this week include:

  • Wednesday, August 3, 2022, 3:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.
    John F. Kennedy Community Center
    315 Howdershell Road, Florissant, MO 63031
  • Thursday, August 4, 3:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.
    Centennial Commons
    7210 Olive, College Town, MO 63130

The City works daily to connect residents to resources, and the response from the community has been tremendous. Volunteers are needed to help assemble care kits and distribute food. If you are interested, registration is available through United Way of Greater St. Louis.

This afternoon from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m., Behavioral Health Response (BHR) will provide on-site mental health support to flood survivors in Room 100 at Lexington Elementary in North St. Louis. If you can’t get to the onsite support center, anyone can call BHR at 314-469-6644.
