Douglas Community Services Assessing Needs of Storm Victims


Douglas Community Services, Hannibal, Missouri
Kurt Parsons

Douglas Community Services in Hannibal is holding assessment of what help is needed by residents following the recent storms. The assessment will be Friday, June 7, from 1 – 3 p.m. in the community room at Douglas Community Services. 

“One of our federal mandates is to provide disaster relief and mitigation assistance” said Stacy Nicholas, Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) Director at Douglas Community Services. Nicholas says that Douglas has helped provide such assistance for every natural disaster in Marion County for the past three years.

Those seeking help will meet with RSVP volunteers who will conduct a quick survey. That survey will help Douglas and partnering community organizations ascertain needs for food, clothing and shelter. Insurance help will also be available.

Applicants should bring identification in the form of a drivers license, state ID or utility bill. Douglas Community Services is located at 711 Grand Avenue in Hannibal.

Douglass Community Services, Inc. is a private, not for profit human services agency based in Hannibal, Missouri, that sponsors programs such as Head Start; Retired and Senior Volunteer Program; Court Appointed Special Advocates; Kids In Motion; Healthy Marriage Initiative; Emergency Food Pantry; monthly distribution of commodity foods; Christmas Adopt A Family; Emergency Utility Assistance; and the Nifty Thrifty clothing store. Additionally, the agency’s personnel are active in advocating and intervening for families and individuals experiencing problems with day-to-day crises.
