Urgent Needs

Page Editors: MarilynF@humanityroad.org  /  Lori.Sherk@humanityroad.org

These urgent need items will be posted with the most recent needs posted at the top.  Unless there is independent confirmation that an urgent need item is ongoing, the item will removed from the bottom of the list and archived after 7 days.  The facilities listed below provide care for or house senior citizens, children, or otherwise have a larger than ordinary population  and/or special needs individuals who need aid desperately.  If you are reporting on behalf of an urgent need, please send updated information about what the need is or if it has been met so that we can keep the information here current.
