United Way of St. Charles collaborates with World Renew to help meet residents’ post Ida needs

United Way of St. Charles has partnered with many agencies and organizations in the aftermath of Hurricane Ida.

Residents with any unresolved financial, emotional, or household needs are encouraged to attend walk-in clinics hosted this month in St. Charles Parish.

United Way of St. Charles, in collaboration with the St. Charles Parish Long Term Recovery Group and Rebuild United, has invited World Renew Disaster Response into the community to assess residents’ continuing needs.

“United Way of St. Charles has made a firm commitment to helping our community recover from Hurricane Ida,” Kacy Kernan, UWSC director of community impact, said. “This needs assessment will be a huge help in helping us identify where our most significant needs are.”

Kernan said the data collected by the group will be used by United Way to connect people with resources. Residents are encouraged to bring in paperwork related to any financial or household need.

Walk-in centers will be available in three parish locations from March 21 through April 1.

The clinic at the RPCC United Way Campus, located at 13145 Highway 90 in Boutte, will be open March 21-25 and March 28-31 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and from 9 a.m. to noon on March 26 and April 1.
