Dear Members and Advocates,

As Hurricane Idalia moves closer to shores, we are sending reminders to members to SEEK SHELTER.  Our county-by-county listing of emergency shelters is a start, but this listing is not current so please confirm with your local sheriff offices.

Thanks to a report from Unbroken Dreams in Hillsborough, there is a shelter in Tampa that is approved for registered citizens.   It’s at New Life Church, 8216 N 13th St, Tampa, FL  33604.  Feel free to pass the word.

If you are aware of shelters in your area that are approved locations for our registered citizens, please post it here or send it to [email protected].

If you need help, support, information, or just need to talk to someone….FAC is your family and circle of support – never feel alone or helpless.  We encourage you to be an active member year-round so that, in times of need, you will already know the local support in your area.

Be safe.
