‘One-Stop Shop’ brings state government services closer to tornado victims. Many services available starting at noon Wednesday at Ivy Tech; free rides available.
The state of Indiana will help connect tornado victims with recovery resources at one central location starting Wednesday, March 7.
The center will be located on the first floor of Ogle Hall at the Ivy Tech campus in Sellersburg, near Interstate 65 and Ind. 311 (exit 9), and will open at noon. After Wednesday, the center will be open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., seven days a week for at least 10 days, according to a press release from the state.
The state used this ‘one-stop shop’ approach successfully in 2008 when flooding affected many areas of the state and served thousands of Hoosiers. Many key state agencies will be present and providing services, referrals and vouchers to tornado victims. It is likely that the agencies, and the services they will provide, will expand as the recovery continues.
