Recovery group to provide assistance for to Albany residents

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A long term storm recovery group will be in Albany for the next two weeks helps folks who are still in need.

Volunteers with World Renew Disaster Response Services will be going door-to-door, opening walk-in centers, and taking appointments.

This is for anyone who has needs that have been unmet and suffered damage from the January storms.

Volunteers say they are happy to help those who may not know where to go.

"Our intention is to try and find as many folks that have been off the grid as possible. Not everybody who has experienced loss reports it to FEMA. There are lots of people who are nervous about doing that. There are many folks because of language barriers don't know who to go to for help," said Mark Martin with World Renew Disaster Response.

The two walk-in centers will be located at Radium Springs Baptist Church at 2402 Roxanna Road and at the old coke plant at 925 Pine Ave.

The centers will open at 10 a.m. and stay open until 7 p.m. on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

The two centers will also be open on Saturdays from 9 am to 1 pm. You can also call to set up an appointment at 229-773-0405.
