A little over a week after the landslide in Oso, Washington, the Red Cross is still out in full force- and will continue to be for as long as it takes.
Volunteers are providing shelter, food, water, emotional support, health services and spiritual care to area residents, their families, and emergency responders. Red Cross Family Care Centers are open in Darrington and Arlington. Families who have lost loved ones or are waiting on word from the missing can get mental health assistance and spiritual care. Meals and snacks are also provided.
At a time when so many have lost so much- from homes to family members, it can be hard to figure out what to do next. The situation is overwhelming. Red Cross case workers are meeting one-on-one to create recovery plans and to connect people with local agencies to help them get back on their feet.
