211 Tampa Bay is here to help our friends, family and neighbors impacted by Hurricane Dorian with critical disaster support service information.
Our 211 team continues to participate in local and statewide conference calls to monitor the track, progress and community impact for Hurricane Dorian. Our team continues to gather information on new and emerging disaster support services to help connect and direct individuals and families to services to meet their immediate needs.
Based on our experience during past storms, we know that many people will need essential disaster support information regarding human services during the immediate and long term aftermath of a storm. Our 211 team is here to provide emotional support as well as vital information regarding federal and state disaster relief and recovery financial assistance programs, emergency food and housing assistance, legal support, prescription assistance, health services, disaster volunteer and financial support opportunities, and so much more.
211 Tampa Bay is also here to assist potential Hurricane Dorian “evacuees” who may seek refuge from the storm here in our community. Many of them may need special assistance with transportation and gasoline in addition to the same disaster support service information that our community members may have. Our 211 center also stands ready to provide mutual assistance to other impacted 211 centers if needed.
If you know of someone who needs assistance, please encourage them to reach out to one of our 211 Specialists for help by texting their zip code to 898211 OR by
calling 211 on your telephone.
