Urgent Need for Housing and Supplies

There is an urgent need for housing and supplies for displaced families arriving in Lancaster from hurricane-devastated Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The School District of Lancaster received 16 new families in the last week alone and is asking for help from local churches as they face a housing crisis for many of these students. With colder weather approaching, the shelter system is full, and there are currently no sufficient shelter options for families or for single individuals with health issues. Some arrivals are staying with already over-burdened families. The winter shelter does not open until Dec. 1st. This is just the beginning of a huge influx of displaced persons who will be arriving to this area, as airlines are offering cheap one-way flights from Puerto Rico to Harrisburg and Philadelphia.

How you can help:

  • Offer housing for a family or individual
  • Donate supplies (Contact Jasmyne King, below, for specific needs)
  • Set up a temporary shelter in your church. (A tub of all the supplies needed for a temporary shelter will be provided. Volunteers would be needed to facilitate the shelter in shifts.)

To help, CONTACT: Jasmyne King, Coordinator for Families In Transition, at School District of Lancaster: jskingsmith@lancaster.k12.pa.us Office: 717-396-6829 Cell: 717-940-1875.
