Multi-Agency Resource Center to Open in Fremont
Water seeps into the west side of town with sandbags lining the intersection of Ridge Road and Military Avenue in Fremont, Neb., on Saturday, March 16, 2019. The flooding followed days of snow and rain — record-setting, in some places — that swept through the West and Midwest. (Kent Sievers/Omaha World-Herald via AP)

The Nebraska Volunteer Organizations Active in Disaster (NVOAD) and its community partners will open a Multi-Agency Resource Center (MARC) at the Fremont Public Schools Administrative Building, 130 East 9th St. Fremont, NE 68025.

The MARC will offer impacted residents additional aid and resources, including financial assistance for those who qualify, from multiple relief agencies. The MARC will be open from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Friday, March 29 and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, March 30.

The MARC brings relief resources and offers residents convenient access to agencies in one central location. The American Red Cross, Salvation Army and the Nebraska Volunteer Organizations Active in Disaster (VOAD) are just a few of the organizations that will be available at the MARC.

This is one of several MARCs that will be open throughout the flood zone over the coming weeks. “Our goal is to get resources and referrals to people in need, and anyone affected by the recent floods is welcome,” said Dicie Nicklaus, Community Engagement and Partnerships Lead for the Red Cross disaster relief effort.
