Schultz Fire/Flood Assistance And Information Center (FAIC) Opens Today At Noon

(August 2, 2010 – 10:30 a.m.) The Schultz Fire/Flood Assistance and Information Center (FAIC) opens today at noon and will be open from noon to 7:00 p.m. seven days a week. It is located at 7121 N. Highway 89 (just south of the former Coffee Beanery, in the former Eye Works building).

The center will offer services to the residents of Timberline, Fernwood and Doney Park who have been affected by the recent flooding in these areas. Center staff will connect flood victims with social service and volunteer agencies and resources in a one-stop location. These services range from assistance with home repairs, to financial advice, to counseling services to deal with the tragedy and loss they may have experienced.

The center’s goal is to provide information and referral services to the residents so they can begin the recovery process and regain stability in their lives. While the center may not have immediate answers or solutions, or all the requested resources, the agency representatives will do their best to find appropriate answers and to link community members with available resources.

The Schultz Fire/Flood call center (1-877-679-8390) will continue to serve as a point of access to flood information and services, and the FAIC will serve as a walk-in center. Information and referrals will be shared between the call center and the FAIC to best meet community needs.

During the FAIC’s first week of operation, on-site information and assistance will be provided by the agencies listed below. Information on legal, insurance, housing, finance and health issues will be available. Additional agencies and resources will be added as needed.

Coconino County Community Services
United Way of Northern Arizona and its partners
Disaster Ministry
St. Mary’s Food Bank (food boxes)
Coconino County Health Department
Coconino County Guidance Center (counseling services)
The FAIC is a collaborative effort between United Way of Northern Arizona, Coconino County, and the State of Arizona.
