There is still help out there….
While we have finished the first wave of clean up in North Bend, there are still many homeowners who either have clean up needs to be addressed or have not been in their homes yet. The local volunteer line will no longer be open, but that doesn’t mean that help is not available.
There will be an informational session at the public library on Thursday from 6:00 – 8:00 that will have information on assistance with home clean-up along with health information. Any materials at the session will be left at the library for public to pick up.
Some options are:
Operation Blessing (hosted by Fremont Nazarene Church). If you need assistance with salvaging personal belongings, debris removal, cut out drywall, chainsaw work, etc. Residents can complete forms at the church at 960 Johnson Road in Fremont from 9:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. or call 757-284-9183. (They prefer you apply in person to get the process going.)
Crisis Cleanup Hotline – They will have clean-up crews that are able, reputable and vetted agencies that can assist with fallen trees, remove drywall, insulation, flooring, furniture, appliances, tarp roofs, etc. To request help: 833-556-2476.

Oath Keepers – 402-604-4343 – Will accommodate to needs of homeowners. They can send a person to evaluate needs and coordinate homeowners and volunteers.
If you contact more than one agency, you need to let the other know so they don’t spend time getting to you when you no longer need assistance.
