Columbia, SC – Hearts & Hands Disaster Recovery (HHDR), a
501c3 nonprofit organization will be providing Disaster Case Management
services throughout the state of South Carolina. HHDR will assist residents in
the 24 disaster declared counties with access to long term flood recovery
resources. The disaster impacted counties include: Bamberg, Berkley, Charleston,
Colleton, Dorchester, Orangeburg, Calhoun, Fairfield, Greenville, Kershaw,
Lexington, Newberry, Richland, Spartanburg, Clarendon, Darlington, Georgetown,
Horry, Lee, Marion, Sumter, and Williamsburg.  This program is free to residents in need of
flood recovery assistance. This program is made possible by funding provided by
the SC Emergency Management Division.

Residents in need may dial 2-1-1
from any phone in the state to be linked with Disaster Case Management
services. This service is being provided by SC 2-1-1 which has begun the
Disaster Case Management Intake process. Victims of the October 2015 Flood
still in need of assistance are now able to dial 2-1-1 and get their
information entered into the disaster case management coordinated system. All
residents in need of flood recovery will be assigned a HHDR Disaster Case Manager
who will connect them with long term recovery resources and assist them with disaster
recovery planning.

SC 2-1-1 is not the agency providing disaster case management
services, but is an avenue for entering the system. Everyone who enters the
system may not be eligible for disaster case management services. Victims of
the October 2015 Flood still in need of help can dial 2-1-1, select their
language, and select option “7” when prompted to be connected to an intake
specialist.

SC 2-1-1 is a service of United Way Association of South Carolina.
The disaster case management intake service was made possible through a grant from
the South Carolina Department of Employment and Workforce.
