Senator Linda Stewart Public Service Announcement Hurricane Maria Evacuees Still Need Homes

ORLANDO, Fla. – State Senator Linda Stewart Senator (D-Orlando), is calling on citizens of Central Florida to take action in assisting families displaced by Hurricane Maria in finding homes. “With the end of the federal aid program for temporary housing for these families expiring today, we call on our Central Florida neighbors to help the vulnerable families who have been unable to find long-term housing to date.”

Currently as many as twenty-five families need long-term places to live, including families of elderly people living on fixed income, with disabilities, and with small children. These families have been unable to come up with an alternative and they are out of time. With the end of housing aid, they need to leave the hotels today, September 14, 2018.

If you can donate or assist in securing housing for these families, please call:

Father Jose Rodriguez at Jesus de Nazareth Episcopal Church at (407) 706-7313.
