Recent historic flooding throughout southeastern Louisiana has created a situation where many of our families, friends and neighbors are seeking assistance. We encourage all of our community to assist those who are going through the rebuilding process in their communities.

Assistance can be gleaned from the local Red Cross chapters, the state of Louisiana website and FEMA. It is recommended that all those impacted by flooding complete the appropriate forms at https://www.disasterassistance.gov/ in order to expedite the process.

For information on preventing mold growth, contact the Louisiana Department of Health & Hospitals or your local library.

The DeRidder branch of the Beauregard Parish Library currently has a limited supply of pamphlets available on cleaning water-damaged property.

If you or a family member need assistance with attaining forms, getting information on housing, supplies, or food resources, please contact the Beauregard Parish Library at programming@beau.org or by calling 337-463-6217.

We are here to help
