Crisis Counseling Available to Hurricane Florence Victims
Call the Hope 4 NC Hotline for more information
North Carolina residents in counties hit hard by Hurricane Florence can now benefit from counseling services through the Hope 4 NC program, overseen by a division of the NC Department of Health and Human Services.
The program provides survivors of Hurricane Florence access to crisis counseling, outreach and education, and assessments and referrals for services and further support. Disaster preparedness is also a focus of the program.
“The challenge for us now in North Carolina is no longer ‘if’ we will be impacted by the next storm event, it is ‘when,’ ” said Susan Robinson with the NC Department of Health and Human Services, who heads up the Hope 4 NC project. “Our aim is to help individuals of all ages in our communities stay resilient through trauma experienced, recover well and be prepared.”
Hope 4 NC will be providing services through September 2019, and is supported through funding from the Federal Emergency Management Agency and the national Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration.
