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.
