The Marine Corps Information, Referral, and Relocation program partners with United Way’s 2-1-1 agencies to provide resources to those affected by recent hurricanes.

When a catastrophe like Hurricane Harvey, Irma, or Maria happens, your world can be turned upside down!  Whether it is an evacuee, a family member, a friend, or yourself, you are probably connected to someone affected by the recent Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria.

Your Information & Referral (I&R) Specialist and United Way’s 2-1-1 service are able to connect you and your family members to a wide range of resources.

Community I&R centers operated by United Way’s 2-1-1 remained operational during the hurricanes and continue to assist those who have been affected.  Below are links that will connect you directly to the 2-1-1 resources:

  • Resources in response to Hurricanes Harvey and Irma 
  • Irma-specific resources: People in the state of Florida can text 898211 statewide to find out where emergency food is being distributed through a FEMA-funded program.     
  • Resources for Puerto Rico: You can also call 787-268-5353; 787-728-7099 and 787-728-8500
